CSE Provides Bespoke Cables To Help Power Britain

Friday 14th April 2023

Hinkley Point C nuclear power station is a two-unit, 3,200 MWe EPR nuclear power station under construction in Somerset. This is the first new nuclear power station to be built in the U.K. for over 20 years and is scheduled to begin operating in 2025 – 30 years after Sizewell B nuclear power station was commissioned.

When fully operational, Hinkley Point C will be capable of generating 3,260MW of “low-carbon” electricity – sufficient to power around six million homes! -  Its design, construction and ongoing operation will have generated thousands of employment opportunities and benefitted the local supply-chain economy.

Since 2020, CSE cable specialist James Fletcher had been working closely with an English refrigeration equipment manufacturer to source several bespoke cables within the strict specifications laid down in the project documentation.

With access to our excellent global supply chain, James quickly nominated an accredited manufacturer to work with and develop several bespoke cable sets for use on refrigeration skids within the power station site. After several revisions to the technical parameters, test reports were submitted and approved, and purchased orders were expedited.

As part of the contract, CSE took delivery of the cables, cut them down to the customer's required lengths, and delivered them to site to a pre-defined schedule! 

If you are looking for a specialist cable and would like to take advantage of our supplier network, contact CSE on 01628 529448 or email sales@cseuk.com
