[Machine Translation] Hitachi announced plans to delay the goal of starting nuclear power plans planned in the UK for about two years to 2027. The collection of funds necessary for the project is difficult, and reconsideration of sharing has started between companies that undertake design and construction. The continuation of the project itself is increasingly uncertain. In the plan, two nuclear reactors will be built on Anglesey island in the UK. The goal of starting operation has been announced as “early 20’s”.However, according to officials, the Hitachi side recently proposed a new goal “April 27” to companies and others involved in the plan. It is planned to decide whether to start construction in 2019, but it seems to be assuming a case where this time is delayed.
