Company finalizes machine designs for Piketon plant
(2008-04-18)
(WOUB) - The company building a $3.5 billion uranium enrichment plant near Piketon says it has finalized the initial
design for the machines that will be used.

USEC Incorporated, based in Bethesda, Maryland, says its testing program is demonstrating reliable and consistent
operations.

The company still needs to get financing for the plant.

But officials expect it to begin operating late next year and be going
full tilt by late 2012.

The enriched uranium it produces would be used in generating electricity at nuclear power plants.
