Horizon Nuclear Power will conduct its next Open Surgery on Monday 18 February at Cemaes Village Hall, where local people can call in and ask questions about plans for a new nuclear power station at Wylfa.
The Open Surgery follows January’s announcement that the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) had asked the nuclear regulators to begin formal discussions with Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd. regarding the Generic Design Assessment (GDA) of the UK Advanced Boiling Water Reactor (ABWR).
The assessment process plays a key part in enabling Horizon’s plans to develop a new nuclear power station at Wylfa. As with previous monthly Open Surgeries, Horizon’s project team will be on hand between 1pm and 7pm to answer questions and listen to feedback. Alan Smith, Head of Site Development at Horizon Nuclear Power, said: “Since our acquisition by Hitachi Ltd last November, we have been extremely busy assessing the options for developing our sites and the likely timelines.
We hope to be in a position in the spring to share more details on our proposals for Wylfa. In the meantime, we’ll continue to hold our monthly community events and we warmly welcome anyone who has any questions to call in to the Open Surgery to meet us.” Horizon’s team can also be contacted via its Wylfa information line on 0800 954 9516 or by emailing
