Anglesey Council welcomes Wylfa announcement

This is an important development which represents a significant step forward in terms of securing a new power station on Anglesey. More importantly, it’s a major step towards realising significant local job creation and investment in the Anglesey economy, as well as wider benefits for the North Wales region.

I’d like to congratulate Hitachi Ltd. and welcome them to Anglesey. The County Council, through its Energy Island Programme, looks forward to building a long and fruitful working relationship with Hitachi Ltd. in order to maximise local benefits for Anglesey and its communities.

– Cllr. Bryan Owen, Isle of Anglesey County Council Leader
