Company says demonstration of American Centrifuge Plant is near
(WOUB) - Officials at a nuclear facility in Pike County are getting ready to show off their uranium enrichment proces to investors.

Maryland based United States Enrichment Corporation is developing the American Centrifuge Plant near Piketon.

The company expects the commercial plant to begin making fuel for nuclear reactors in late 2009.

Local officials say they'll welcome the expected 400 plus permanent jobs the project should bring.

USEC is still trying to line up investors for the 2.3 billion dollar commercial plant.

Company officials say they'll hold a demonstration of its
energy efficient process for potential investors in the next few weeks.
