'Cutting-edge' eco park set to create jobs on Anglesey

Work is set to start on a £1bn combined food and power plant on Anglesey, which will create more than 1,700 jobs.

The large biomass plant and eco park will be built near Holyhead after the company behind it, Orthios, bought the former Anglesey Aluminium site.

The development will see over 500 permanent jobs and 1,200 construction jobs brought to the area before 2018.

The plant will process waste to create power, with heat generated used to farm king prawns and grow vegetables.

Isle of Anglesey Council leader Ieuan Williams said there would be jobs as a result of the innovative project.
