Bilfinger secures a contract from Hinkley Point C

Bilfinger has won a contract from Hinkley Point C for the execution design, supplier management, fabrication and installation of piping systems for the construction of the new nuclear power plant in the South West of England. Worth ~€68 M (~£58 M), the contract is to be completed by 2025 and will be booked under Bilfinger’s Engineering & Maintenance Europe and Technologies segments. 
Bilfinger UK, Bilfinger Engineering & Technologies in Germany and Bilfinger Peters Engineering in France are involved in the project’s delivery, which will begin immediately. They are to provide execution design, pre-fabrication, and supply of pipework for the ‘Balance of Plant’ package, which comprises piping systems that support the operation of the power station. The piping systems consist partly of steel and partly of glass-reinforced epoxy (GRE) pipework.
Bilfinger has comprehensive expertise in the fabrication and installation of GRE pipework, a technologically challenging field. The Group’s strong track record in nuclear new-build projects and in the design, fabrication, and assembly of complex piping systems as well as its longstanding working relationship with EDF were key factors for Bilfinger in securing the contract.
