About 欣克利C点

What is 欣克利C点?

The first new nuclear power station to be built in the UK in over 20 years; 欣克利C点 in Somerset will provide low-carbon electricity for around 6 million homes, create thousands of jobs and bring lasting benefits to the UK economy.

Construction and operation of 欣克利C点 will create 25,000 employment opportunities, 1,据预测,英国公司将获得1万名学徒和64%的项目建设价值.

Marking a significant milestone in the revitalisation of our nuclear power industry, 欣克利C点 will make a major contribution to the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions. 由两个EPR反应堆产生的电力每年将抵消900万吨的二氧化碳排放, or 600 million tonnes over its 60-year lifespan.

Supporting the environment

欣克利角C核电站为应对气候变化做出的贡献意味着,在其运营的60年里,它将发挥巨大的作用, positive impact on the environment.

可持续性和环境保护也是建筑本身的关键特征. 新技术正在被使用,同时一组环境专家正在帮助提高当地的生物多样性和栖息地, supporting nature to thrive on land that had been intensively used in agriculture.

The reactor at 欣克利C点

欣克利角C核电站将是英国新一代核电站中的第一座. The planned twin unit UK EPR is capable of generating 3,260兆瓦的安全, low carbon electricity for 60 years.

Proposed change to fish protection measures

十博手机客户端已经向国务卿提出申请,要求“实质性改变”2013年批准的欣克利角C发展许可令,取消在欣克利角C安装声阻鱼器的要求.

Dredging mud in the Bristol Channel

As part of the construction of 欣克利C点, 在为冷却水系统钻探六个竖井之前,十博手机客户端需要从欣克利角C核电站附近的海床上挖出泥浆和沉淀物. The cooling water system is a significant piece of infrastructure, which involves tunnelling more than 3km out into the Bristol Channel.

Tunnel boring at 欣克利C点

在欣克利角C将有三台大型隧道掘进机,将形成两个入口隧道和一个出口隧道, for the power station's cooling water system. 也会有一个较小的隧道工具,将挖掘一个隧道,以形成鱼返回系统.

Hinkley Point Visitor Centre

At our new Hinkley Point Visitor Centre, 游客们被鼓励以一种有趣和互动的方式探索电力是如何产生的. 各个年龄段的人都能了解到为什么人们迫切需要生产低碳能源,以及法国电力公司(EDF)是如何通过建设欣克利角C核电站(欣克利C点)以及使用风能和太阳能等其他可再生能源来帮助英国实现净零排放的.

Frequently asked questions

How many power stations are you planning to build in the UK?

法国电力公司及其合作伙伴目前计划在英国建造两座发电站,各有两座UK- epr核反应堆. They will be at Hinkley Point in Somerset and Sizewell in Suffolk, subject to the relevant consents, permissions and the right investment framework.  十博手机客户端还提议在埃塞克斯的海滨布拉德韦尔(Bradwell-on-Sea)建设一个新的核电站,采用英国HPR1000反应堆技术, again subject to receipt of the relevant consents and permissions.

Will there be any further consultation on 欣克利C点?

公众谘询及法定谘询工作已于2009至2011年期间完成, 不过,十博手机客户端会继续积极与社会各界接触,作为十博手机客户端对本地和区域发展的承诺的一部分. 十博手机客户端定期发布最新消息和出版物,并举办社区论坛和会议,提供最新消息和讨论十博手机客户端的活动.

When did construction start?

2013年10月,十博手机客户端与英国政府就欣克利角C项目投资合同的关键商业条款达成了原则性协议. 2014年10月, 欧盟委员会批准了EDF集团和英国政府之间的协议.

最终的投资决定和建设开始于2016年下半年.

How safe is 欣克利C点?

Nuclear safety is our overriding priority and is at the forefront of what we do.  Our ambition is to achieve a ‘zero harm’ safety record.

As with all of our operational nuclear power stations across the UK, 欣克利角C核电站的设计基础确保了拟议中的核电站能够抵御自然灾害,这些自然灾害发生的频率低于十分之一,000年. 这些灾害包括潮汐、风暴潮和海啸,它们是孤立的和综合的事件.

为了保护欣克利角C站免受此类事件的影响,站台的高度被设定为14.0 metres above sea level, behind a sea wall with a crest level of 13.5米. 此外,还考虑到未来气候变化可能导致的海平面上升,并考虑到新气象站的整个60年运行寿命.

十博手机客户端的每个核场所都定期举行演习,向十博手机客户端的监管机构——核监管办公室(ONR)证明,十博手机客户端有应对紧急情况的适当安排. The exercises are performed against challenging scenarios agreed with the ONR, and also involve other regulatory bodies, the emergency services, local authorities and central Government.

How will you deal with the waste from 欣克利C点?

The new EPR™ reactor design marks significant progress towards sustainability. 该反应堆的设计旨在优化核燃料的使用,并最大限度地减少长寿命高放射性废料的产生. Thanks to its large core, surrounded by a neutron reflector, a maximum number of neutrons contribute to energy generation in the core. 这意味着,与目前运行的水反应堆相比,EPR™反应堆使用更少的铀,产生更少的长期放射性废物.

The UK needs to deliver a long-term solution for all its radioactive waste, 过去和未来不仅仅是民用核工业还有其他工业. The UK Government’s solution is the construction of a geological storage facility. 政府的安全管理放射性废物项目目前正在努力为地质处置设施确定一个合适的地点,以安全地存放英国的乏燃料和中等水平的废物.

As a developer of new nuclear power stations, 十博手机客户端将通过实施强有力的计划来管理十博手机客户端生产的废物和废燃料来发挥十博手机客户端的作用, 负责任地关闭十博手机客户端的工厂,并为这些计划拨出足够的资金. For these reasons, 十博手机客户端已设立了一项资金资助的退役计划,并自豪地为十博手机客户端的电站从头到尾承担全部责任.
