A little history


The Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant, located near Portsmouth, Ohio, began operations in 1954 as part of a U.S. government expansion program for the production of highly enriched uranium to fuel military reactors, nuclear weapons production and for use at the Y-12 plant in Oakridge TN.

On May 31, 2007, USEC announced the begin of construction on its American Centrifuge uranium enrichment plant in Piketon, Ohio. The company is "working toward beginning" commercial plant operations in late 2009 and having approximately 11,500 machines deployed in 2012, which would provide about 3.8 million separative work units (SWU) of production based on current estimates of machine output and plant availability.
USEC expects to operate a Lead Cascade of centrifuge machines in the American Centrifuge Demonstration Facility in Piketon in mid-2007.

On March 16, 2010, USEC Inc. announced a major step in the American Centrifuge program with the operation of a cascade of AC100 centrifuge machines in a commercial-plant configuration in Piketon, Ohio. USEC refers to its production centrifuge machine design as the AC100 series centrifuge machine.

On June 18 2009 Duke Power Corporation, French-owned nuclear reactor vendor AREVA and USEC Inc. announced plans for a new nuclear power plant at the Department of Energy’s Portsmouth site in Piketon, Ohio
