URENCO outlines expansion plans

In a trading statement issued on January 25, 2010, URENCO outlined its plans to expand its enrichment capacity. The group aims at bringing it to 18,000 tSWU/year by  2015 from the current 12,200 tSWU/y. This will be done by continuing the expansion of the plants in Almelo, the Netherlands (Halls 5 and 6) as well as by bringing into commercial operation the first URENCO plant in the U.S. (NEF, the National Enrichment Facility), which is expected to happen later in 2010.
