Bouygues Travaux Publics, Quille Construction and DTP  handled the civil engineering for EDF's EPR reactor in Flamanville, a third-generation European nuclear reactor. The site comprises 12 industrial buildings, including the machine room and the containment structure in the reactor building. With 400,000 m3 of concrete poured and 50,000 tonnes of supporting elements assembled (yielding a weight seven times greater than that of the Eiffel Tower), this is a site of extraordinary proportions. The reactor dome installed in July 2013 weighs 240 tonnes on its own!
