Former Laing O'Rourke man to lead Anglesey nuclear project

Former Laing O’Rourke chief Carl Devlin has been handed a key role in the Wylfa Newydd nuclear project.

Project promoter Horizon Nuclear Power appointed Devlin as programme director for the Anglesey mega scheme.

The civil engineer has worked on Heathrow Terminal 5, the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and the upgrade of London Underground.

He will be responsible for developing and constructing the Wylfa Newydd power station from when he joins Horizon this month.

Devlin said: “The company’s development of Wylfa Newydd on Anglesey means it’s one of the most exciting projects currently underway in the UK.

“There’s been great progress made to date but there are still many challenges ahead and I look forward to using my industry experience to lead the programme department in ensuring the successful development of the project.”

NCE reported this summer that US giant Bechtel and Japanese firm JGC Corporation were lined up to build the Wylfa Newydd power station. Construction could begin before the end of this decade.
