Wylfa B meeting taking place on Anglesey

Meetings are taking place on Anglesey to find a solution to the problems facing the Wylfa B project. The two companies backing the project, RWE npower and E.on pulled out yesterday.

They are meeting with representatives from the council as well as the local AM and MP.

The Assembly Member for Angelsey, Ieuan Wyn Jones, says that whilst delayed, the project should go ahead as three years of preparatory work has already been done. He said that two French firms including EDF and a Swedish company had shown interest in the project at the time Horizon was formed.

He says that RWE npower and E.on faced problems that other companies wouldn't when working to make the Wylfa B project work.
