Episode 1

Following the teams tasked with the construction of the foundations and cooling towers

Episode 2

The race to complete the cooling water intake heads

Episode 2

In the second part of this series, 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 nail-biting 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.
