Wylfa A should be shut down earlier
by Kimberly Travis
(London, United Kingdom)
The existing Wylfa should be shut down safely now.
Operators should be aware of the old age of the equipment and attention should be drawn to the safety of people living in Great Britain and Europe and Scandinavia.
It is planned to be shut down 2010 but things refer to a nuclear accident in the West Coast of England in 2009.
Wylfa B's start is irresponsible if it is mainly based on factory power needs.
Experts should pay attention to the condition of the power station and/or the checking systems, the people in it, weather conditions and the affects of the credit crunch.
I am happy to discuss this further.
Editor's note: Thanks Kimberly for your comment. I am sure others will want to chime in on what is a very important topic, namely the replacement of the current Wylfa A, as well as the more strategic considerations of the UK's energy security and reducing our carbon footprint.
