Horizon Nuclear Power has launched a virtual reality game featuring the proposed Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station site. The game can be played in either English or Welsh.

The game includes a virtual reality rollercoaster ride which allows players to compete for prize tokens as they ride around a 3D rendering of the power station.

Horizon’s proposed development on Anglesey will represent a multibillion pound investment in North Wales.

“It’s been another big year for Horizon as our project continues to gather pace,” said Greg Evans, safety and generation director at Horizon Nuclear Power. “We’ve created more local jobs – including 10 apprentices joining us in September – are expanding our office on the island and continue to ensure local firms have opportunities to work with us.”

Last month, geotechnical contractor Fugro announced that it had commenced marine site characterisation works at the Wylfa site. The company said that the detailed works would assist Horizon in gaining a better understanding of the site’s offshore geological conditions.
