By Leila Steed18 January 2021
Insulation and fire protection company Kaefer has provided specialist access and coating services to the new Hinkley Point C nuclear plant in the UK.
The Germany-based company was commissioned to undertake insulation works to the inner containment liners of the plant’s Nuclear Island, which is currently being constructed in Somerset in the south west of England. The project saw the company partner with scaffolding manufacturer Layher, to provide vertical and horizontal access to the walls of six containment liner structures.
