Nuclear Power to Boost UK Power Grid next Decade?
Posted on: 14/08/2015

The UK power mix may soon get a boost from nuclear energy as US giant Bechtel and Japanese firm JGC Corporation join together to build a nuclear power station on the Isle of Anglesey.

This information comes only days after energy giant EDF awarded £1bn of contracts on the Hinkley Point C project as the nuclear programme pushes forward.

A spokesman for Hitachi said: “We are in exclusive discussions with two companies- Bechtel and JGC corporation- regarding a potential role in the engineering, procurement and construction delivery team for Wylfa Newydd.

“It is our intention to put together a delivery team which will build on our knowledge of deploying the Advanced Boiling Water Reactor, adding extensive global experience.

“This progress will also pave the way for significant involvement of UK firms throughout the supply chain.”

The two companies are still working towards securing approval for their plans; however it is thought that construction could begin in the next five years.
