A PORTISHEAD-based company has has won the multi-million pound contract to deliver all of the oversized equipment needed in the next phase of construction at Hinkley Point C.
The British-owned Osprey Group say they will use their expertise in both marine and heavy land transport to provide logistics and management for all equipment entering the site where two new nuclear reactors are currently being built.
Nigel Cann, Delivery Director for HPC, said: “It’s fantastic to see a local company step up to the challenge of delivering this volume of critical components for our project. “Osprey has already proved to us that they have the capability and expertise to deliver to the high standards of safety, quality and efficiency required for such a complex construction job.
“We set out to ensure that businesses in the region would benefit from HPC and this is the latest example of us delivering on that commitment.”
Osprey will be transporting all of HPC’s largest assets – critical, one-off pieces of equipment manufactured around the world and delivered by water via a dedicated muster port at Avonmouth.
From there, deliveries will be made to the build teams on site in line with predefined construction scheduling. Each consignment will be received direct from a delivery vessel before onward movement to the HPC terminal, cutting down on road use, disruption, and emissions.
