Building Britain’s Biggest Nuclear Power Station – 10 June 2021 – 10/6/2021 – Thursday – BBC Two

Series 1 Episode 2 of 4

In the second episode, our cameras pick up and follow the projects’ next major construction milestones.

We get up close and personal with the world’s largest land-based crane during the biggest lift on the project to date. We learn how the team has created an extensive flood defence system to protect the site from the worst imaginable weather events – including a once-in-10,000 year storm surge – to avoid a nuclear disaster like the one that befell the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan. We also follow specialists as they work to uncover unexploded World War Two bombs that threaten the installation of the 4500-tonne cooling water intake heads.
