BALTIMORE, February 12, 2008 - UniStar Nuclear Energy (UNE), a strategic joint venture between Constellation Energy (NYSE: CEG) and the EDF Group, today announced it has notified the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) of its plans to submit a Combined License (COL) application in late 2008 for a potential advanced design nuclear reactor at Constellation Energy’s Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station in upstate New York.
UNE submitted a letter on Feb. 8 to the NRC formally selecting Nine Mile Point as the site for a potential U.S. Evolutionary Power Reactor (U.S. EPR). UniStar noted that it has yet to make a final decision to build a new reactor at Nine Mile Point.
