Building new pylons near Stogursey

We’re working to connect Hinkley Point C power station to the existing National Grid network, which when complete, will bring low carbon energy to the South West and connect six million UK homes and businesses.

In February 2021, we began building a new 4.5 kilometre overhead line north of Wick and removing 2.3 kilometres of existing overhead line that runs to the Hinkley B power station.

With the first phase of new pylons completed, the team are hanging the wires between the pylons in preparation for the new line to become operational from May 2022.
