UniStar Nuclear names Calvert Cliffs

1 May 2007

Constellation Energy’s Calvert Cliffs site has been named as the preferred location for the first potential new nuclear power plant to be developed by the Unistar nuclear alliance.

The enterprise between Constellation Energy and Areva notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that a location adjacent to Constellation Energy’s existing Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant in Lusby, Maryland, has been selected as the site for its first combined construction and operating licence (COL) application. The application, which will feature the so-called US Evolutionary Power Reactor (EPR), will serve as the reference document for all future UniStar Nuclear COL applications to the NRC, a statement from the group says.
