Ofgem cuts Hinkley connection budget by £60m

Ofgem has reduced the allowed budget for the connection of the Hinkley Point C nuclear plant to the transmission network by £60 million. The Hinkley Seabank project will involve the installation of 49 kilometres of overhead power lines – mostly using the new “T-pylon” design rather than traditional lattice towers – as well as 8.5 kilometres of underground cabling through the Mendip Hills.
