Honeywell announces full production to start July 10

METROPOLIS, IL (KFVS) -

Honeywell announced Tuesday, July 9 they have completed preparations to restart the plant, and intend to start full production of UF6 Wednesday morning.

According to Plant Manager Larry Smith, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission finished its reviews of the plant upgrades and notified them last week that they have approval to restart the entire plant.

“Honeywell has appropriately enhanced the plant’s ability to withstand earthquakes and tornadoes,” said NRC Region II Administrator Victor McCree.

Smith said they plan to stay focused on running their operations safely at all times, and serving their customers extremely well.
