Menter Newydd is a non-incorporated joint venture of Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe, Ltd., Bechtel Management Company, Ltd. and JGC New Energy UK Ltd., taking joint and several responsibility for all activities undertaken in delivery of its contract to Horizon.
Hitachi Nuclear Energy Europe draws on Hitachi's 50 year history of Boiling Water Reactor deployment, including 4 ABWRs, the technology that will be built at Wylfa Newydd, whilst Bechtel – which has performed engineering and/or construction services on more than 80% of nuclear plants in the USA and 150 worldwide – recently completed construction of the first nuclear power station authorised to operate in the USA this century, at Watts Bar in Tennessee.
Menter Newydd is managed via a Joint Project Management Office (JPMO) based in Gloucester, with an increasing presence at Wylfa Newydd in coming years.
The detailed allocation of scope from Horizon Nuclear Power to Menter Newydd remains under development, but the team is expected to lead a significant proportion of on-site construction activities; whilst Horizon will retain direct responsibility for off-site and associated developments.
