Wales—Billion Dollar Project



The Orthios Group is set to start work on a $1.4 billion power plant on Anglesey Island in Wales that will create more than 1,700 jobs.  The power plant will burn waste wood to generate electricity, and the heat produced will be used to warm water for a “king prawn” [probably Penaeus monodon] farm.  Waste from the farm will then be used to grow vegetables.
