Wylfa B Jobs and Power to England
by L S Faulkner
wylfa b power jobs
Most new Wylfa B jobs will be for incomers, and the power generated will go to North West England, losing up to 30 per cent of the power generated in the process.
Why isn't it being built closer to where it's needed, rather than out on a limb on Anglesey?
There also appears to be an agenda going on with the media reporting of the support for a new Wylfa being decidedly one-sided.
There are plenty of people who don't want it, but the pro-Wylfa B set seem to get most of the coverage.
Anglesey County Council have dithered and sat on their hands doing nothing for the prospects of job-seekers on Anglesey in the mistaken hope that Wylfa B whould be the answer to all their problems.
If it doesn't come, you can be sure they'll be pointing their fingers at others for the supposed lost employment potential.
The wisdom of siting a nuclear power station on an island must also be questioned. With two bridges linking us to the mainland, what is the plan if something goes wrong?

Thanks very much for your contribution.
Actually, there is a real prospect for a significant number of jobs at the new Wylfa B nuclear plant being offered to suitably qualified local people.
A new college specialising in fabrication and engineering skills will open on Anglesey in September, giving local young people a great opportunity to acquire the very skills needed at the new power plant, as well as in other renewable energy projects.
So the future looks very good for local people who take up the opportunity to develop what will be very much in-demand skills with a new Wylfa B.
While there will probably be some niche skill areas for which there may not be locally available people, this should not detract from the preparations well underway locally to equip young people to maximise their chances of securing employment with this mega project for Anglesey and the north west region.
