The exhibitions will outline the studies conducted in the past 12 months, give people the chance to ask questions
about the project and discuss the next steps. Horizon is developing options for two to three new reactors adjacent to the existing Magnox station, capable of producing three times as much electricity. The project could see around 5,000 construction jobs created with 800- 1000 people employed in the operation of the station. First generation would be around 2020 and the station could operate for up to 60 years.
Alan Smith, Head of Site Development at Horizon Nuclear Power, said: “Since our last round of public exhibitions in
November 2009, we’ve been developing our understanding of the project. We can now talk in a little more detail
about the power station and the infrastructure needed, and what it might mean for local people. It’s also very
important we give people a chance to ask questions and air their views.”
“I’m looking forward to meeting as many people as possible. Local understanding is vital for a successful project,
and to maximize the economic benefits to Anglesey,” he said.
The exhibitions will include information about traffic and transportation; skills and training and where the workforce
might be drawn from and live. Horizon will also be sharing information about supporting developments such as a
Marine Offloading Facility (MOLF).
As well as the Horizon team, National Grid will also be present to explain its role in connecting electricity to the
national electricity transmission system, and answer questions.
