Ultra Safe Nuclear Corp. plans $232M Alabama micro-reactor assembly plant

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey announced today that Ultra Safe Nuclear Corp., (USNC) a Seattle-based company that’s expanding micro-reactor technologies, plans to invest $232 million to locate a facility in Gadsden to produce its industry-leading Micro-Modular Reactor.

The highly automated MMR Assembly Plant (MAP) will manufacture, assemble, test and inspect the non-radiological modules needed to construct its advanced microreactors. No radioactive material is to be used or stored at the company’s new Alabama facility.

USNC says the Gadsden plant will be the nation’s first commercial-scale microreactor production facility. When operational, MAP will employ 250 professional and technical workers.

“Alabama is home to an impressive array of highly innovative companies, so our state is an ideal place for Ultra Safe Nuclear Corp.’s new advanced microreactor assembly plant,” Governor Kay Ivey said.
