Westinghouse Electric Co. and Ameren Missouri together will hold an economic summit for the state of Missouri on the campus of the University of Missouri on Monday, July 23, 2012. Westinghouse said the summit will highlight the economic development opportunities that are possible by developing, manufacturing, constructing and commercializing the next generation Westinghouse 225 MWe Small Modular Reactor (SMR) at Ameren Missouri’s Callaway Energy Center in Callaway County, Mo.
Ameren Missouri is supporting Westinghouse in its application to secure Department of Energy (DOE) SMR investment funds of up to $452 million that will be awarded to promising SMR projects. A final decision on awarding the investment funds by the DOE is expected in late summer 2012.
