Hinkley Point C – the world’s most financially radioactive energy project

Times 11th April 2018 , One Flamanville is quite enough: The 1,650 megawatt European pressurised
reactor is a mere six years late and three times over budget. And all the
more exciting for it being the prototype for an even bigger nuclear
disaster: the £20 billion, 3,200MW Hinkley Point C.

Still, forget about that for a sec. At least the French nuclear guinea pig is finally on its
home run, due to be loaded up with nuclear fuel in the last quarter of this
year. Always assuming one thing: that EDF can sort out the dodgy welding on
the cooling pipes and stuff.

Anyway, it’s another EDF success story, up
there with the carbon spots on the steel for Flamanville’s nuclear dome,
the ones that potentially weakened it. Or the lost safety records from its
Creusot Forge supplier. And it does make you think. It’s bad enough
Theresa May signing us up to the world’s most financially radioactive
energy project, without monthly reminders of EDF’s technical ineptitude.
