Concerns have been raised over the potential impact on tourism by a £10 billion nuclear power station project in Anglesey. The multi-billion Wylfa Newydd scheme is being delivered by Horizon Nuclear Power. The 10-year long development involves building a new power station built, including two nuclear reactors with a minimum generating capacity of 2700 MW. It is expected to create 4,000 construction jobs, with up to 9,000 workers required around peak period at the end of 2023.
