In reaction to the dome for Hinkley Point C’s first reactor building being lifted into place (link), Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said:


“This is a huge milestone and a real triumph of British engineering and construction. Once complete Hinkley Point C will be the UK’s greatest and greenest energy asset ever, producing more clean power and cutting more emissions than anything we have seen in this country before.

“It is incredible to see the work being carried out by the thousands of workers on site and I look forward to welcoming many more major milestones in the future.”
