The decommissioning of Wylfa and future development of Wylfa Newydd power station on Anglesey will provide opportunities for Welsh businesses and employment in the area, according to the Welsh Government. The nuclear power station has now ceased generating electricity after about 45 years. Subject to planning consents, the proposed new power station, Wylfa Newydd, is expected to start generating electricity by the mid-2020s. It is expected to employ about 8,500 people during the peak of the construction period, with the operational workforce then numbering almost 1,000 for the 60-plus years of the power station’s life.
