Hinkley Point C, the first new nuclear power station to be built in the UK in over 20 years, is one of the largest construction projects in the world. During peak construction up to 5,600 construction workers will be on site at any one time. Up to 55 tower cranes will work on the project, while Sarens’s 5,000 tonne capacity super heavy lift ring crane, SGC-250 (Big Carl), and Marr Contracting’s Favelle Favco M2480D Heavy Lift Luffing (HLL) tower crane, commonly dubbed ‘the world’s largest luffing jib tower crane’, are already being utilised there.

International Cranes and Specialized Transport’s special Hinkley Point C site report is now available online with additional content including these jaw-dropping drone and time lapse videos, as well as previously unseen photographs.
