Horizon Nuclear Power will be holding their next “open surgery” for people living near the proposed new nuclear plant at Wylfa on Anglesey, North Wales. The monthly Open Surgeries, which are held in locations across Anglesey, give people the chance to find out more about the Wylfa Newydd Project and offer the opportunity to have questions answered by a member of the Horizon team.
Richard Foxhall, Horizon’s Stakeholder Relations Manager, said: “This is the second Open Surgery of 2017. We find Open Surgeries a useful way to understand what people want to see from Wylfa Newydd and find out what they care about. For Horizon, we’re in the middle of a very exciting time with a number of local initiatives in the pipeline, one of which is our Technical Apprenticeship Scheme, so please pop in and find out more about our work in 2017.”
Earlier this month (see previous Nuclear Matters article) Horizon Nuclear Power opened applications for its second intake of technical apprentices to support the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station project on Anglesey. Applications to the scheme remain open until 3 March 2017. The second intake of up to 12 apprentices is part of Horizon’s commitment to put in place a skilled local workforce to help build and operate the future nuclear power station.
