SECURING OUR LOW CARBON FUTURE

Horizon Nuclear Power is a UK energy company working to develop a new generation of nuclear power stations. A wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi,Ltd., we plan to provide at least 5,800MW of new power station capacity to the UK, enough to power around 11 million homes.

Our projects would create up to 850 permanent jobs during operation at each of our sites on Anglesey and Oldbury, with a construction workforce of around 4,000 workers for the majority of the time. Up to 9,000 workers will be needed at the peak of construction.

In January 2019, we announced we were suspending work on our nuclear new build projects after it hadn’t been possible to reach an agreement on the financing and associated commercial arrangements in time to sustain ongoing levels of development.  It is hoped a way forward can be found, in discussion with UK Government, that will allow activity to resume so our projects can play a key role in the UK’s low carbon energy future.
