Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station

Received 13 August 2018
From National Grid

Representation

Dear Sir/Madam

REPRESENTATION BY NATIONAL GRID ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION PLC (“NGET”) TO THE Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station DCO (“THE PROJECT”)


NGET wishes to make a relevant representation to the Project DCO in order to protect its position in relation to infrastructure and land which is within or in close proximity to the proposed Order limits. NGET’s rights to retain its apparatus in situ and rights of access to inspect, maintain, renew and repair such apparatus located within or in close proximity to the Order limits should be maintained at all times and access to inspect and maintain such apparatus must not be restricted.

The documentation and plans submitted for the above proposed scheme are being reviewed in relation to impacts on NGET’s existing apparatus and land interests located within this area, and NGET may require protective provisions to be included within the DCO to ensure that its interests are adequately protected and to ensure compliance with relevant safety standards. NGET will liaise with the Promoter in this regard.

NGET assets which have been identified as being within or within close proximity to the proposed Order limits are:


SUBSTATION
Wylfa (400kV) Substation

OVER HEAD LINE
4ZA (400kV) overhead line route – Pentir to Wylfa (circuits 1&2)

UNDERGROUND CABLE
Wylfa 1 (132kV) underground cable
Wylfa 2 (132kV) underground cable


DCO LAND BOUNDARY
Horizon’s DCO boundary and interaction/overlap with the proposed NGET North Wales Connection DCO boundary especially at:
o Wylfa substation/the powers Horizon are seeking over the NGET substation at Wylfa and the land needed by NGET for its own project and;
o at Horizon’s environmental mitigation area where similarly there is an overlap in terms of DCO boundary.


As a responsible statutory undertaker, NGET’s primary concern is to meet its statutory obligations and ensure that any development does not impact in any adverse way upon those statutory obligations.

NGET reserves the right to make further representations as part of the examination process but in the meantime will negotiate with the promoter with a view to reaching a satisfactory agreement.

I hope the above information is useful. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.


Yours sincerely
Spencer Jefferies
Development Liaison Officer, Land and Acquisitions
