Japanese electronic giant Hitachi confirms it has completed its purchase of Horizon Nuclear Power, which operates Anglesey's Wylfa Power Station.
As part of the deal, the companies will make "a multi-billion pound investment" in training engineers and staff for a new nuclear power station on the island.
Horizon says 6,000 construction jobs will be created, with 1,000 people employed when the new plant is completed.
Horizon was created in 2009, as a joint venture between E.ON UK and RWE npower.

Plaid Cymru has issued a carefully worded statement reflecting the conflict between the party's opposition to nuclear power and the support for a new Wylfa power station from most of the party's members on Anglesey including the AM for Ynys Mon, the former Plaid leader, Ieuan Wyn Jones.
Plaid Cymru's leader, Leanne Wood, recently stated that the party has always opposed new nuclear power stations on new sites but gives Plaid's representatives on Anglesey the right to make up their own minds on building new stations on existing sites, balancing environmental concerns with jobs.
The Labour MP for Ynys Mon, Albert Owen, has also supported a new nuclear power station but does not have the backing of all his colleagues. The Newport West MP Paul Flynn asked earlier this year if stopping a new reactor at Wylfa was an argument in favour of an independent Wales.
Friends of the Earth Cymru have spoken out against the announcement that Japanese company, Hitachi, will be building a nuclear power plant on Anglesey.
The environmental charity has raised concerns about the competency of the company to build a power station after it was responsible for designing the plant involved in the Fukushima disaster.
First Minister, Carwyn Jones AM, has described the decision by Japanese electronics company, Hitachi, to buy the nuclear power project Horizon, as "very good news" for Wales.
According to Hitachi, between five and six thousand jobs could be created during construction and a thousand permanent posts when it is up and running.
The First Minister says the move will help to "secure our energy supply in the future."
