Horizon to be wound up

On 10 January The Times revealed Horizon, the company behind the threatened new nuclear plant at Wylfa, is to be wound up completely by Hitachi before the end of March, 2021. This is the logical conclusion of the process that started exactly two years ago when Hitachi suspened Horizon’s operations at Wylfa. Then in September 2020, they announced that they were ditching their plans to build two huge reactors at Wylfa completely. by 31 March, 2021.

The attempt to build Wylfa B has been shambolic from the start.  It’s high time to abandon the foolish dream that has paralyzed Anglesey’s economic development since 2006.

This is the end of Horizon’s journey. And the end once and for all of the nuclear industry’s plans to destroy an especially beautiful part of northern Ynys Môn. It is high time that politicians on Ynys Môn and gwynedd Councils, the Senedd in Cardiff, and at Westminster to recognise this fact and to turn their attention towards cleaner, cheaper and more sustainable ways of producing electricity. The renewable technologies are available. This is the time to start a real green revolution.
