HPC Project News

At this very early stage in the programme over 70 South West Hinkley Supply Chain portal registered suppliers have workers on site at Hinkley Point C (HPC) and we continue to promote suppliers to Tier 1 contractors.  In the last 6 months we have sourced 1750 supplier matches to 135 work packages and promoted them to relevant Tier 1 procurement teams.

As the number of workers required by suppliers delivering contracts increases, the need for a healthy supply of suitably qualified and experienced people to work on site becomes critical. Early experience illustrates the need to plan ahead to upskill existing teams and to use a number of routes to recruit rather than assuming the normal approach will work.

Our observation is that all business, whether in contract or not, would do well to develop robust skills and employment plans so that they can respond to the challenges and opportunities that HPC presents.
