Sizewell Success

Official opening for EDF Building...

Vinci Construction have held an opening ceremony with EDF Energy for the new Emergency Response Centre (ERC) at Sizewell. EDF Chief Executive, Vincent de Rivas and Under Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change, Baroness Warsi officially opened the building.

A C Bacon Engineering have carried out the 200 tonne seismically designed structural steelwork contract for Vinci Construction.

The new centre is based near the Sizewell B rail head in Leiston. A number of features have been incorporated into the design of the ERC to minimise the impact of the new building on the environment and surrounding landscape, such as a green sedum roof, renewable technologies, a curved roof and an increase in existing hedgerows.

The ERC will house back-up plant and equipment to enhance the station’s emergency response capability.
