Fylde MP Mark Menzies is lobbying for nuclear fuel for a proposed new power station in Wales to be made in his constituency. Japanese firm Hitachi is currently leading on the project for two reactors at the Wylfa Newydd power station project which is set to cost around £12-14bn. It is looking for additional partners to join the Horizon Nuclear Power consortium to drive the scheme forward and to take some of the funding burden. Horizon has handed in a 41,000-page dossier to the Planning Inspectorate for a development consent order and aims to complete the advanced boiling water reactors in the mid 2020s. Fylde MP Mark Menzies has been told his representations to ensure nuclear fuel made at Springfields at Salwick can be provided for a new nuclear power plant on Anglesey will be heard.
