Menter Newydd has been selected by Horizon Nuclear Power to build the £14bn Wylfa Newydd nuclear power project in Anglesey, UK.

Menter Newydd, a specially created joint venture, includes Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe, Ltd., Bechtel Management Company, Ltd. and JGC Corporation (UK) Ltd.

Horizon’s CEO Duncan Hawthorne said: “This is an important step in any large, complex infrastructure project and it adds to Wylfa Newydd’s growing momentum.

“The depth and breadth of expertise Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe, Bechtel and JGC bring to the Menter Newydd venture will help us ensure the timely delivery of our project, which will be vital for meeting the UK’s energy gap and boosting the local economy in North Wales for decades to come.

“We look forward to working with the team and continuing to make great strides with our plans.”

 Work on the site is continuing to advance and the UK ABWR remains on track to complete its regulatory generic design assessment by the end of 2017.
