wlyfa newydd

Companies from across North Wales are being urged to prepare for Wylfa Newydd by registering their details.

The new power station - delivered by Horizon Nuclear Power and supported by Hitachi-GE - will create big opportunities across various sectors.

And a recent supply chain event was attended by hundreds of business people, all keen to gain a better understanding of the opportunities associated with the project.

Companies now need to make their interest known through an on-line registration system.

Horizon has a well-established supplier-registration set-up, while Hitachi-GE recently announced the launch of a separate registration process.

Companies can register with Horizon, Hitachi-GE or both - depending on their interest.

The Hitachi-GE registration focuses on opportunities associated with the construction of the power plant, associated services and products.

The registration process requires basic company details and only takes around 10 minutes.

It's not a 'pre-qualification' exercise, and doesn't guarantee future opportunities. It's a way of bringing your company to the attention of Horizon or Hitachi-GE.

If you agree (by ticking the check-box during registration), your details will be shared with Hitachi-GE’s main ('tier 1') partners and contractors.

Registration isn't mandatory to work with Hitachi-GE, but it's a great way to begin engaging with the company and the project.

Dylan Williams, head of service for economic and community regeneration at Isle of Anglesey County Council, is urging local and regional businesses to register their details on both the Horizon and Hitachi-GE websites.

He says: "“Opportunities are not limited to technical and engineering works, but provide great opportunities for support services - including food and drink and transport."

County council leader, Councillor Ieuan Williams, adds: “This system is the first step for local companies to register for opportunities in the supply chain. It’s vital that both Anglesey and North Wales businesses show their interest and commitment by registering their details.

"Through the county council, and our collaboration through the North Wales Economic Ambition Board and Welsh Government, we will support and assist where possible.”

Once registered, all companies will need to understand the commercial, quality and safety requirements to access the nuclear supply chain.
