July 13, 2004: DOE To Help Study Building An Advanced Nuclear Plant
The TVA is considering building a 2,600-megawatt, two-unit facility by the middle of the next decade. No ABWRs are currently operating in the United States, although three are operating in Japan.
The TVA is currently working to refurbish its 1,200-megawatt Browns Ferry Unit 1 nuclear plant, which it intends to restart in 2007. The plant, also located in Alabama, was shut down in 1985.
