Gwilym O Jones is a Senior Production Technician at Wylfa power station and chairman of Anglesey County Council.
He has worked at the site since its opening in 1967, and says that the highly trained workforce that has been built up is keen for a replacement power station after the current one closes in 2014.
"We have the required skills" he says. "We've trained local lads, from Anglesey, from the Gwynedd and the surrounding area"
"They are trained and they are ready to do the work."
