Moyock company to cast modules for nuclear facilities

By on June 19, 2016

The modules create a fortress-like system to house large stainless steel canisters that store used nuclear fuel.

State Rep. Bob Steinburg will cut the ceremonial ribbon on a new concrete-casting company in Moyock Monday, June 20. The event will be held from 10 a.m until 11:30 a.m.

The company is part of Arvena TN’s American supply chain. The 4-acre facility will employ 20 people and manufacture the concrete components for Areva TN’s NUHOMS storage modules.

The modules create a fortress-like system to house large stainless steel canisters that store used nuclear fuel.

They are in use at more than 30 nuclear energy facilities across the United States, according to a press release issued by the company.

Steinburg will be joined by Currituck County officials, along with Greg Vesey, senior vice president of Areva TN, and David Culp, vice president of engineering, Duke Energy North Carolina.

The ceremony will be held at the Areva TN Moyock Casting Co., 117 Winchester Way in Moyock.
