Telent Awarded IT Contract at U.K. Nuclear Plan, Includes ESN Integration

8th Apr 2019

Telent Technology Services received a six-year contract to supply the communications and IT infrastructure at Hinkley Point C (HPC), first nuclear plant to be built in the U.K. in 25 years. EDF Energy selected Telent to provide a multifaceted, IT and communications package at the new site. Once running, HPC will generate low carbon electricity for around 6 million homes throughout southwest U.K.

Under the agreement, Telent will design, install and commission the communications and IT system for the new power station. This will include a dual data center infrastructure and both wireless and wired communications networks to connect about 150 buildings. The network infrastructure will support a unified communications and messaging platform. The company will also provide a multiservice on-site radio network, including integration with the Emergency Services Network (ESN), closed circuit TV (CCTV), public address and voice alarm system, integrated command and communications system and sitewide TV distribution.

“This new contract reflects our successful track record in providing critical communications solutions in a range of diverse and sensitive environments,” said Mark Plato, CEO at Telent. “At Hinkley Point C, we will be able to utilize our experience and expertise from right across the company and channel it into this immensely sizable, national project.”

Telent was awarded the contract for the project following a demonstration of a collaborative and flexible approach to ensure HPC’s requirements would be satisfied. The company will work across a broad range of technologies using its own directly employed engineering teams.
