Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe Ltd

Our role in Wylfa Newydd

Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe is currently leading Hitachi's work to support Horizon Nuclear Power in the delivery of Wylfa Newydd.

Working under an Early Contractor Engagement (ECE) contract, Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe is working to support deployment of the UK ABWR technology – the latest incarnation of the tried and tested ABWR design - to the UK. Once operational, 2 ABWR reactors will provide enough secure, low-carbon, 24/7 power to supply some 5 million UK homes.

Though Horizon Nuclear Power is itself currently a 100% Hitachi subsidiary, Horizon sits within Hitachi's Global Nuclear Energy division, and operates wholly separately from HNE.
