Delivering for Horizon: Supply chain and construction
Menter Newydd has been specially created to prepare for and support delivery of the engineering, procurement and construction of Horizon Nuclear Power's Wylfa Newydd nuclear project, on the Isle of Anglesey.
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.
Opportunities exist for companies providing goods and services ranging from high-specification systems, through a complete spectrum of manufactured goods, to a multi-thousand strong construction workforce entailing civils, M&E, construction labour and much more. The service sector opportunities associated with a peak site-workforce of some 9,000 workers also provide an immense opportunity for local firms and workforces.
Like any major development, this will be an international project – with specialist suppliers from across the globe playing an important role.
However there are real and meaningful opportunities for UK, Welsh and local companies to play a very significant role. More detailed information on supply chain structure and procurement opportunities will be made available as we progress through the project – through publication on this site, and later newsletters to registered suppliers.
