Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, will provide support on Civil Engineering design for the nuclear island; KBR will work on Project Controls; and Wood will support Architect Engineering.

Eric Chassard, Project Director for Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe, said: “Wood has been involved in every nuclear new build in UK history, and KBR and Atkins are also world leaders in their fields, with clear and proven experience on projects on this scale and complexity. The pedigree, expertise, and detailed knowledge of all three partners are second to none. Once operational, Horizon’s plant at Wylfa Newydd will produce some 2.9 GW of clean, secure, and affordable electricity.”
