Hinkley Point C, United Kingdom
Nuclear New Build Mega Project to Power the Future
EDF Energy and subsidiary Nuclear New Build Generation Company (NNB) are building two new reactors at Hinkley Point C (HPC) on the northern Somerset coast, the first in a new generation of UK nuclear power stations. This marks a significant moment in the revitalisation of the UK’s nuclear power industry.
The project is a proposed 3.2 GW nuclear power plant with two EPR reactors producing almost four times more electricity than Hinkley Point B’s current reactors. During the construction period, it is estimated that the build will bring 25,000 job opportunities to the area.
Thinkproject’s CEMAR software was selected to manage the contract administration across a vast portfolio of design, construction and maintenance contracts. Both NEC and FIDIC contract suites have been used, with CEMAR an integral tool towards the delivery of the design and construction phases of the project. CEMAR software has been deployed alongside other software applications and integrated to provide seamless workflow for non-conformance identification and rectification through a dedicated web service API.
Uniquely, NNB HPC are procuring works using the FIDIC suite of contracts alongside NEC and we developed an off-the-shelf FIDIC module to support contract administration in a single application with integrated reporting. This combined NEC/FIDIC solution also incorporates best-practice project management processes to leverage common business processes and standardise NNB HPC’s approach to contract administration.
