Kier/Bam £100m Hinkley nuclear contract signed

A Kier/Bam Nuttall joint venture has signed contracts with EDF Energy to carry out site preparation works for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset worth more than £100m.

The work includes excavation, earthworks, terracing, the installation of construction site infrastructure and formation of roads and networks to allow main construction to start.

Kier Group chief executive Paul Sheffield said: “Both Kier and BAM have an excellent track record in the nuclear industry and enjoy a long-standing relationship built over many years of working together in joint venture.

“The Kier BAM team is looking forward to supporting EDF in its plans to deliver the first new nuclear power station in the UK for over two decades.”

The contract is estimated to create 350 jobs – including a significant amount of local employment - while the main construction works will see up to 25,000 people work on site over the course of the project.
