Request: The missing assessment of alternatives for the EIA Wylfa should be conducted from an environmental perspective, and the future need of electricity production should be declared.
Request: An assessment of different reactor types from an environmental point of view should be presented in the EIA, including a description of the method of decision.
It seems that Horizon Nuclear Power severely downplays the consequences of a possible severe accident – the given figure of 186 MBq Cs-137 release even in case of a severe accident scenarios is not plausible.
In case of a severe accident in Wylfa with a containment failure, whole of Europe could be contaminated severely.
Request: Any new NPP in UK needs to prove that a severe accident with a containment failure is not possible
Request: In the EIA documentation it should be explained what consequences the Brexit will have on the whole project.
