Telent wins six year Hinkley Point C contract

The contract to provide the UK’s first nuclear plant to be built in 25 years has been awarded by EDF Energy to Telent Technology Services.

The six year Hinkley Point C (HPC) deal includes a dual data centre infrastructure and both wireless and wired comms networks for circa 150 buildings, with a supporting UC and messaging platform, a multi-service on-site radio network, integration with the emergency services Network, CCTV, public address and voice alarm system, integrated command and communications system and site-wide TV distribution.

“This new contract reflects our track record in providing critical communications solutions in a range of diverse and sensitive environments,” said Mark Plato, CEO at Telent. 

“At Hinkley Point C we will be able to utilise our experience and expertise from right across the company and channel it into this national project.”
“We expect to create a number of apprenticeships and graduate roles in the Bristol and Somerset areas, adding to our current footprint in the south west through a number of existing contracts."

HPC will generate low carbon electricity for around six million homes, create over 25,000 new employment opportunities.
