This is how the Environment Agency is proposing to consult with stakeholders on the generic design assessment (GDA) of Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy Ltd’s (Hitachi-GE) UK Advanced Boiling Water Reactor (ABWR). This consultation plan is for members of the public and other stakeholders who: want to share their knowledge with us; live or work in an area where this design may be proposed by a developer (currently Wylfa Newydd on Anglesey in north Wales and Oldbury in South Gloucestershire); represent a ‘community’ they want to share this information with; are interested in how we assess new nuclear power station designs.

Hitachi and GE have joined forces with two UK universities to support their nuclear research. It has signed an agreement with Imperial College London and Bangor University to provide industry advice to the Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) Research Hub and Network in Wales. The hub was formed in June this year with the aim of enabling the academic and industrial communities to deepen and enhance their understanding of BWR technology and participate in its research and development. The Hitachi-GE joint venture will provide technical expertise and support including a part-time deployment of a researcher to Bangor and building on the existing programme of Japanese internships for UK students.
