– Carwyn Jones AM, First Minister
This is very good news for Wales and the UK. The potential benefits of a new nuclear development on Anglesey would be substantial - not just in creating thousands of highly skilled jobs and boosting the supply chain - but in helping to secure our energy supply in the future.
We will continue to work closely with the UK Government and with Hitachi to secure this investment for Wales.
Japanese electronics giant Hitachi completes its purchase of nuclear power project Horizon, which could lead to the construction of a new plant on Anglesey.
