Hitachi boss delivers warning on Welsh nuclear power plant

02 February 2016

Hitachi Chairman Hiroaki Nakanishi says the company still has concerns about the financing of  Wylfa Newydd's nuclear power plant project in Wales.

He said it is vital for the £8bn project that a subsidy deal can be worked out with the UK government, and has expressed concerns about the project’s costs to Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond.

Hitachi owns Horizon Nuclear Power which is behind the plans to build the new power plant, which could be operational by the early 2020s.
