Hinkley Point C is the first New Nuclear plant in a generation. It will play an important part in the UK's transition to a low-carbon energy future. The site is currently in a 10-year construction period. The new 3.2GW power plant will power six million homes and provide 7% of the UK's electricity. 

Once completed, Hinkley Point C will play a major role in decarbonizing the UK's energy. The project includes key professionals from Project Controls Engineers to Project Controls Managers and risk, Estimating, Planning and Cost Engineers. Hinkley Point C

Grangemouth represents one of INEOS' largest manufacturing sites by volume of products. It is home to three businesses: INEOS FPS, INEOS O&PUK and Petroineos. AtkinsRéalis supports INEOS's transition to net zero by developing a world-scale low-carbon hydrogen plant at its site in Grangemouth. The hydrogen plant, expected to be operational by 2030, will further reduce emissions from the site by 1 million tonnes per year as the site targets net zero by 2045.

Fundamental to INEOS' Hydrogen project will be access to the Scottish Cluster carbon capture and storage (CCS) infrastructure. The CO2 from the hydrogen plant will be sent directly offshore to be permanently and safely stored in rock formations deep below the North Sea.
