My reaction to Hitachi pulling out of Wylfa Newydd

Virginia Crosbie at Wylfa

The site remains the best place for new nuclear energy in the UK.

This is by no means the end of our island’s ambition to have a new nuclear power station on this site, which is a world-class place to install this energy.

The UK government remains completely committed to nuclear power at Wylfa Newydd as am I. However, the fact is work could not continue without a developer.

We have experienced a setback and I share the disappointment of the Anglesey community who have been so supportive of the project and who very much wanted to see the jobs and investment on our island.

My job now is to help find new developers with new ambitions to invest in this site using the latest nuclear technology.

Wylfa Newydd is here ready and waiting for someone to take it forward. It will support the government’s 2050 net zero carbon goal, its levelling up agenda and it will stimulate the UK’s nuclear supply chain.

Most importantly, the support of the community is fantastic, the government support is steadfast and I will do everything I can to ensure it becomes a reality. We go again.
