Horizon to hold last Open Surgery of 2018 on 17 December
Local people can visit the drop in session, which takes place between 1pm and 7pm in Cemaes Village Hall, to speak to members of the Horizon team and hear about the latest news on the Wylfa Newydd Project.
 
Richard Foxhall, External Affairs Manager Wales at Horizon, said: “The last 12 months have seen us reach some of the biggest milestones for the Wylfa Newydd Project, so it’s been a very exciting year for Horizon.  From submitting our Development Consent Order (DCO) application to kickstarting a further programme of supply chain events and taking on even more apprentices, it’s been fantastic to see the project progressing so well.
 
“We’re also looking ahead to our site preparation and clearance work, which will start in the first few months of 2019 and our road improvement work which will start around the same time.  This will all mean we’re as ready as we can be for the main construction process to start.
 
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in 2018.  It’s been great to see so many people visiting us at the National Eisteddfod of Wales and Anglesey Show, giving us feedback at our consultation events and saying hello to the team on our new community vehicle.”

  • Horizon Nuclear Power was formed in 2009 to develop new nuclear power stations in the UK. It was acquired by Hitachi, Ltd. in November 2012. The company is developing plans to build at least 5,800MW of new nuclear power generation plant at Wylfa on the Isle of Anglesey and Oldbury-on-Severn in South Gloucestershire. Its power station sites will employ up to 850 people each once operational with construction workforces of up to 9,000.
     
  • Horizon’s development on Anglesey will represent a multibillion-pound investment in North Wales, creating high-quality, long term employment opportunities and unlocking lasting economic and social benefits for the region.
