About The Event
Hinkley Point B Experience Tour

IGEM YPN members are invited to visit the Hinkley Point 'B' Power Station.

The three and a half hour tour starts in the EDF Energy Visitor Centre based in the Angel Place Shopping Centre in Bridgwater with a 30 minute talk about the power station. This encompasses the background of EDF Energy as a company and their varied sources of electricity as well as a breakdown of the working sites at Hinkley Point, including the potential new nuclear build.

You will then spend some time in the interactive exhibition area before making your way out to Hinkley Point B power station itself.

Here you will visit the control room viewing gallery, the turbine hall and pilecap viewing gallery which is situated 160ft above sea level and looks down onto the top of our two reactors.
