A Japanese-American joint enterprise will construct new nuclear power stations in Great Britain. The facilities are to be located in Wales, at Wylfa.
Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe, Bechtel and JGC Corporation (UK) will take on the construction of Wylfa Newydd, Global Construction Review reported on Friday, referring to Horizon Nuclear Power, a company owned by Hitachi Ltd.
The new power station will have two Advanced Boiling Water Reactors, which will generate 2,700MW.
In 2012, Hitachi Ltd acquired Horizon Nuclear Power, which had been established with the purpose of constructing new nuclear power stations in Great Britain. In addition to Wylfa Newydd, Horizon intends to erect a nuclear plant at Oldbury-on-Severn, situated in South Gloucestershire.
