Horizon Nuclear Power – the UK subsidiary of Japan’s Hitachi – and NuGeneration – the UK joint venture between Japan’s Toshiba and France’s Engie- have joined government officials, trade associations, and wider stakeholders during a trade mission to Tokyo this week. Horizon said yesterday that supply chain companies had met during the UK-Japan Nuclear Industry Forum to discuss how they can work in partnership to deliver the Wylfa Newydd nuclear new build project. At the two-day event, held at the British Embassy in the Japanese capital, participants heard about progress made on this “transformative project” and discussed ways to build on the long history of civil nuclear cooperation between the countries, Horizon said. Horizon plans to deploy the UK ABWR (Advanced Boiling Water Reactor) at two sites – Wylfa Newydd, which is on the Isle of Anglesey, and Oldbury-on-Severn, in South Gloucestershire.
