Revolutionary mini nuclear power stations could be built in North Wales. A consortium led by Rolls Royce is considering building the power stations and if given the go-ahead the first could be generating electricity by the end of this decade. The Government is considering introducing a series of smaller nuclear power station because of delays in building major contracts such as Hinkley C in Somerset and the suspension of projects at Wylfa on Anglesey and Moorside in Cumbria. The Anglesey site is believed to be under consideration as is the site of the now de-commissioned nuclear power station at Trawsfynydd near Blaenau Ffestiniog. Up to 16 mini-nuclear power stations could be built across the UK. Britain’s eight large-scale nuclear power plants are nearing the end of their collective lifespan, with most due to close by 2030.
