AREVA has accepted the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) offer of a conditional commitment to issue a $2 billion loan guarantee to support construction of the Eagle Rock Enrichment Facility, AREVA’s $3 billion state-of-the-art gas centrifuge enrichment plant in Bonneville County, Idaho.
The plant will provide American energy security by helping to secure the supply of domestic uranium enrichment to the country’s 104 operating nuclear reactors.
The construction, licensing, and operation of this facility will generate about 5,000 direct and indirect jobs in the United States, while producing more than $5 billion in economic activity in the regional economy.
