Hinkley main civils deal down to two

Bids led by Balfour Beatty and Laing O’Rourke will go head to head for the £1.2 billion civils package for Hinkley Point C nuclear power station after a rival team from Costain, Sir Robert McAlpine and Hochtief dropped out of the race.

The Balfour Beatty/Vinci and Laing O’Rourke/Bouygues teams will now enter further dialogue with client EDF, which declined to comment.

A source close to the project said the Costain led bid was non compliant but highlighted the lack of a French partner as a “likely factor”.
