AREVA announced today it will partner with Missourians for a Balanced Energy Future for a Supplier Day event on March 31 in Jefferson City, Mo., that will explain the manufacturing, jobs, educational and other economic benefits of a new nuclear power facility in the state. The Supplier Day will enable AREVA to begin the process of identifying and certifying new partner companies that could supply, service and build clean energy facilities in Missouri, the United States and internationally.
AREVA Inc. Chief Operation Officer Mike Rencheck added that “A new nuclear plant project in Missouri would create thousands of jobs, spur billions of dollars of regional investment and stabilize the state’s electric rates for decades once built,”
This will be AREVA’s fourth U.S. Supplier Day; the first three were held in Baltimore, Md., Columbus, Ohio and Idaho Falls, Idaho, respectively. Manufacturers that become AREVA Certified Suppliers will join the 165 other U.S. companies already certified with opportunities to participate in AREVA projects around the world.
Stay tuned for updates about this event and other details as AREVA works to bring clean energy facilities, like nuclear power plants and renewable energy generation to the United States.
