🚨 | Wylfa nuclear plant would cost between £14bn and £17bn

Key points

👉The consortium proposing the plans is made up of engineering firm Bechtel Power and reactor maker Westinghouse Electric Company

👉Propose building two AP1000 reactors, with the design having completed initial safety approval for use in Britain

👉Bechtel’s proposal is for a two-year plan to deliver the front-end engineering design with government funding.

👉Navigating the various investment and regulatory hurdles means that the power station is unlikely to be able to start up until the early 2030s.

👉Westinghouse and Bechtel are hoping to secure about £20M funding from the government’s Future Nuclear Enabling Fund to undertake further engineering and design work.
