THE PROJECT

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

HORI­ZON Nu­clear Power, a sub­sidiary of Hi­tachi Ltd, wants to build a two re­ac­tor power sta­tion close to Ce­maes on An­gle­sey.

Each of the two UK Ad­vanced Boil­ing Wa­ter Re­ac­tors would pro­duce around 1,350 megawatts of low-car­bon elec­tric­ity, to­tal ca­pac­ity 2,700MW. This is enough to power around five mil­lion homes.

It would be built next to the ex­ist­ing Wylfa nu­clear power plant which stopped gen­er­at­ing at end of 2015. Elec­tric­ity would be car­ried from the site on power lines across a new set of py­lons on the is­land.
