Wylfa Newydd is the name of our project to develop a new nuclear power station next to the former Magnox Wylfa Power Station on Anglesey. The name Wylfa Newydd translates as New Wylfa.
Since our acquisition by Hitachi, Ltd. in November 2012, we’ve passed a number of important milestones for the project. We’ve signed a multi-million pound agreement with Hitachi GE-Nuclear Energy, Ltd. to carry out initial design work and we have ramped up our engagement with businesses across North Wales and the UK.
We have also carried out important survey work on and around the Wylfa Newydd development site, including ground investigation works, traffic and transport surveys and environmental and ecological mitigation studies across the site.
We’re currently in the process of assessing potential locations for new and existing support facilities, including workers accommodation, a park and ride and logistics hub and progressing our proposals for route improvements along the A5025.
If you would like to know more about the project, please contact us via our hotline on 0800 954 9516 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wylfa Newydd will require a construction workforce of around 4,000 workers for the majority of the time, with up to 9,000 workers required during a peak period at the end of 2023.
Once complete Wylfa Newydd will create up to 850 permanent jobs and will operate for 60 years, offering employment to skilled workers for generations to come.
A significant power station development like Wylfa Newydd injects tens of millions of pounds a year into the local economy. The main construction phase will see local investment in the region of up to £200 million. Once operational we’ll create 850 jobs – the majority of which will be held by people living on Anglesey - so we expect nearly £20 million to be invested into the Anglesey economy each year through these wages.
We want to see the development reinforce Anglesey as a centre of expertise for low carbon energy generation and nuclear technology, leading to benefits for individuals, communities and businesses.
