Hitachi to give up on nuclear project in UK

Asahi and Mainichi wrote that Hitachi is set to announce today that it will completely withdraw its plan to build a nuclear power plant in the UK. The papers noted that while the Abe administration had promoted export of the nation’s nuclear power generation expertise as part of its economic growth strategy, there will be no concrete projects in the works following Hitachi’s decision. The dailies added that Hitachi had already announced in January 2020 the suspension of its plan to build a nuclear power station on Anglesey, an island off the coast of north Wales, for cost reasons.
