The pump sets will support the operation of the 3200 MWe EPR (European Pressure Reactor) Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant. The plant will be operated by Nuclear New Build (NNB), a subsidiary created by EDF Energy to build and operate two new nuclear power stations in the UK.
As the sub-contractor of Trillium on this project, MHI is responsible for the design and manufacture of all the pumps while Trillium is responsible for project management, purchase of motors, pre-installation testing, and delivery of pump sets.
After the delivery, the pump set will go through pre-installation testing at Trillium and will then be delivered to Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant. The remaining pump sets will be delivered to Trillium sequentially.
