Extensive ground investigations have taken place at the Wylfa Newydd site in Anglesey, North Wales, where Horizon Nuclear Power is planning a new-build nuclear power station. Since 2010 there have been seven significant ground investigations for Wylfa Newydd, where approximately 530 boreholes have been drilled, producing around 20,000m of rock core.
The presentation will focus on the most recent detailed onshore investigations which were carried out between 2014 and 2018, discussing the local geology, the drilling, logging and testing, including how and why a site-specific rock mass classification scheme was developed as part of the geotechnical engineering design.
