N.M. uranium-enrichment plant will expand

Urenco USA has secured $1 billion from its parent company to construct a second phase of its uranium-enrichment facility in New Mexico, with the possibility of adding more phases. Once the second phase is completed in 2014, the plant could provide enrichment services for 50% of the fuel for the country's nuclear plants. "The whole idea is we will continue to expand as long as our orders and the economy and the marketplace allow that," said spokesman Don Johnson. Odessa American (Texas) (7/28)
