Bylor is a joint venture of Bouygues Travaux Publics and Laing O’Rourke, delivering the main civil engineering works at HPC worth over £2.8 billion, constructing the buildings that will house the two EPR (European Pressurised Reactor) nuclear reactors.
Hinkley Point C is making incredible progress on-site in terms of construction. But we are also working hard to make sure the project benefits are accessible to people and businesses across the South West and the rest of the UK. The benefits range from increasing local employment and creating a sustainable regional supply chain, to investing in new training facilities and the community.
To date, Bylor have spent £16.56m in the local Somerset area and £241.57m in the South-West. Bylor have worked hard to ensure the local and regional supply chain benefits from construction of the Hinkley Point C Project.
Although some of our specialised products and services come from vendors in Europe, we have over 30 vendors in the local and regional area providing products and services as we build the two new EPR nuclear reactors. New figures show Hinkley Point C spending in the South-West has hit £3.2 billion – twice the initial target.
Bylor have employed over 300 apprentices across a variety of disciplines, some of whom have now completed their apprenticeship and progressed to Supervisor and Management roles on site. Bylor collaborated with Bridgwater and Taunton College to make the new roles as accessible as possible to local people.
Bylor apprenticeships give people a chance to learn new skills to start careers with the project, even if they don’t have previous experience. Bylor will continue to work closely with local and regional vendors to ensure investment in the local communities surrounding Hinkley Point C.
