Case Study – Hinkley Point

Hinkley Point Installation 1The new Hinkley Point C is the first in a new generation of power stations. Constructed in Somerset Hinkley Point C will create 25,000 employment opportunities and, once completed, it will provide approximately 900 jobs throughout the 60 years of operation. 

Instead of using traditional soldered copper pipe on the project the mechanical contractor chose to utilise Emmeti’s Gerpex Multi-Layer Composite Pipe and Gerpex Press Fittings. Ranging in size from 16mm up to 75mm the pipework and fittings were easily used in conjunction with all the customer’s standard system components (drain valves, shower mixers, thermostatic blenders) by using Emmeti’s patented Monoblocco connector system.
