Our proposed multi-billion pound investment programme in new nuclear power stations at our Wylfa Newydd and our Oldbury-on-Severn sites would each represent one of the largest civil infrastructure projects in the UK.
We will carry out all development activities, including enabling works, securing planning permissions and site licences as well as running all public consultations.
We will be the Site Licence Company (SLC), responsible for constructing, operating and later decommissioning our power plants and as such will directly procure and manage a number of contracts with approved suppliers.
These approved suppliers will be in control of the procurement and management of any sub-contracting services that are required. They will be responsible for all works or goods and for the quality and performance of their supply chain (including every tier of their sub-contractor).
As the SLC, Horizon Nuclear Power will adopt a quality graded approach to overseeing the overall supply chain as part of our ultimate responsibility for safety and quality. This oversight role includes both our approved suppliers and their sub-contractors throughout the entire supply chain.
The role of Menter Newydd.
On 20 May 2016 the formation of Menter Newydd was announced to become the Tier 1 delivery team tasked with constructing Wylfa Newydd.
As it develops and expands its UK operations, Menter Newydd will generate a substantial requirement for goods, services and works and will be directly responsible for managing procurement activity relating to main on-site construction of Wylfa Newydd, including design, procurement and construction of the intended reactor technology – the UK Advanced Boiling Water Reactor.
The role of Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe, Ltd.
Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe, Ltd. was formed in 2015 to provide effective localised management and delivery of selected UK and European nuclear business. Its first major role is to lead Hitachi’s work in the Menter Newydd joint venture.
Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe, Ltd. – in its role as the lead contractor to Horizon Nuclear Power – has a new independent supplier registration website. For more information, please visit: www.hitachi-hgne.co.uk/suppliers
Supply Chain Charter
Our Supply Chain Charter is designed to set out the principles, expectations and behaviours we have set for ourselves and our Tier 1 & 2 suppliers. We will encourage all our suppliers to aspire to meet our principles of openness and transparency, development and involvement in the local supply chain, consideration of Welsh language and culture, and performance – as set out in the Charter.
We have a well-established, separate supplier registration system and this remains the best route to make contact with Horizon.
