EDF Energy Hinkley Point Power Station

Posted by Chris Hinton at 10:07 on 30 July 2018

Shine Food Machinery recently completed a full fit-out of the canteen area of the EDF Energy power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset.


As the UK’s largest producer of low-carbon electricity and the biggest electricity supplier to British businesses, EDF Energy required a quality canteen area which could serve their many staff.


Shine commenced the project in 2017 and were requested to produce all services drawings in Revit for what was to be a BIM installation. Full kitchen walk throughs were produced by Shine in house designers to enable the client to envisage the final installation. Laing O’Rourke, being the main contractor, targeted a nine week installation period and Shine were tasked to meet this deadline within the agreed budget


Matt Summers, Project Manager at Shine, oversaw the delivery of the £858,484.00 project, working closely with the client to ensure that all of their needs and requirements were met.


The Shine team were the manufacturers of the foodservices counters within the canteen which were complete with stone finishes, and also installed the cold rooms and remote refrigeration, as well as complete design and fit-out of the kitchen areas.


Using equipment from leading manufacturers, Shine installed Rational combi ovens, Ambach cooking suites, Fosters coldstores and cabinets, Meiko dishwashers, Halton canopies and EAIS shelving.


Matt said: “This was a great project for both myself and the Shine team to work on. We did hit a few manufacturing issues with turn around times being so tight, but to overcome this we targeted room handovers to other areas in order to release some pressure from our supply chain and to keep the project on time.By implementing this strategy, we were pleased to deliver the back of house kitchens weeks before the handover date, which was a real achievement, and finishing the entire project on time.”
