In reaction to Cwmni Egino completing its first phase of development work to deploy Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) at the Trawsfynydd nuclear site, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said,
“This is an important step for the future of nuclear in North West Wales. Trawsfynydd has a strong nuclear tradition and there’s a real opportunity to revitalise the industry to bring good, highly-skilled jobs and investment to the area.
“Small Modular Reactors will have a potentially vital part to play in providing clean energy for Wales and the rest of the UK, powering homes and industries in communities up and down the country. It’s important that organisations like Cwmni Egino are given the right support so new nuclear projects can mature.”
