Hinkley Point C – Second accommodation block getting ready for business

Abtec’s engineers continue their great work on the second accommodation block for the Hinkley Point C new nuclear power station project.

Hinkley Point C, the first nuclear power station to be built in the UK for over 20 years, is one of the largest construction projects in Europe.  To accommodate many of the 3,100 workers on site, two workers campuses have been built.

We’ve been working on the project for the last two years, designing, installing and supporting the IT and communications infrastructure, for the accommodation blocks.  Our four onsite engineers provide IT support for the accommodation manager’s employees, Host 2 Ltd.  They also manage and maintain the tech we’ve designed and installed, including;

 

  • Wide Area Networks
  • Over 450 Cisco wireless access points
  • Mitel communications system with over 1600 handsets
  • Over 100 Cisco switches
  • Over 50 TB of storage

 

Our engineers are currently building the infrastructure for the second block of accommodation, with 1500 rooms, in readiness for its opening in December.
