Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe this morning signed up three UK companies to support delivery of design for the £14bn project.
Assuming a successful project outcome, Hitachi will deliver the nuclear island and architect engineering for the proposed Welsh nuclear power station under contract to Horizon Nuclear Power, also a subsidiary of Hitachi.
Atkins, now part of the SNC-Lavalin Group, will support on civil engineering design for the nuclear island. Also signed up is KBR to work on project controls and Wood to support architect engineering.
Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe Project Director Mr Eric Chassard said: “Wood, has been involved in every nuclear new build in UK history. KBR and Atkins are also world leaders in their fields – with clear and proven experience on projects of this scale and complexity.
“The pedigree, expertise and detailed knowledge of all three partners are second to none.
“We are rapidly developing a team of the world’s most capable companies as we prepare to deliver the Nuclear Island and Architect Engineering for Wylfa Newydd, and couldn’t have found stronger partners to support us.”
