Hinkley Point C, the new nuclear power station being built in Somerset, will make a major contribution to the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions, and ITI are to play a key role in ensuring the safety and control of the plant’s HVAC facilities.
The first new nuclear power station to be built in the UK in over 20 years, Hinkley Point C (HPC) will be owned and operated by EDF, who declare that it will provide low-carbon electricity for around 6 million homes, create thousands of jobs and bring lasting benefits to the UK economy.
ITI’s client Exyte Hargreaves will deliver the heating, ventilating, air conditioning (HVAC), and smoke ejection works for the power station’s turbine halls, electrical buildings, and the associated galleries. ITI will deliver their part of the project over the next three years, predominantly from the company’s Warrington and Sheffield sites, which aligns with EDF’s vision of nuclear new build boosting the economy across the whole of the UK.
ITI have been chosen for their demonstrable experience of delivering safe, compliant solutions to the nuclear industry, to design, build and deliver the safety and control system and instrumentation sub-system for the HVAC in a project worth several million pounds to the future-focused systems integrator.
