Hinkley Point C Power Line Approved

 Hinkley Point C Power Line Approved

The British government approved a power line project at the Hinkley Point C nuclear plant.
When completed, the project will carry power 37 miles from the planned 3.2-GW plant to the southwest of England. The power line will use a new generation of pylon called the T-pylon, according to an article from Reuters Africa.
Owner EDF plans to build the nuclear plant for 18 billion pounds ($25.5 billion) and start operations in 2025. EDF and Chinese utility CGN agreed in October to jointly build Hinkley Point C but have not finalized funding.
