Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station

Received 25 July 2018
From Ministry of Infrastructure and Water


In 2017 the Netherlands government expressed the wish to participate in the EIA Regulation 24 process for a new nuclear power station at Wylfa, Anglesey, North Wales. The reason for this was that the Dutch government wanted a judgement by the ANVS about the risk of transboundary pollution on the territory of the Netherlands, especially in case of a major accident or incident.

We confirm that the Ministry of Infrastructure and Watermanagement still wants to be registered as an interested party. The Ministry wants to be informed about the status and process of the project, and is especially interested in possible transboundary effects and possible measures to prevent transboundary effects.
