Bechtel is PMC for nuclear plant

12 September 2018

Horizon Nuclear Power had appointed Bechtel as Project Management Contractor (PMC) for its proposed Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station on the Isle of Anglesey.

Horizon has also signed further contracts with Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe (HNE), and JGC New Energy UK Limited (JGC) to continue to provide support during the project's development stage.

The move further strengthens the delivery structure and builds on previous intensive work, enabling the project to move into the next phase. Bechtel will oversee the project management of the power station, together with Horizon.

Assuming a successful project outcome, Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe will deliver the UK Advanced Boiling Water Reactors for the power station, also drawing on their technology expertise to act as Architect Engineer. JGC will continue to provide a range of specialist services around the 'Balance of Plant', the supporting components and systems needed to deliver the energy beyond the generating unit itself.
