Nuclear Virginia

According to the Lynchburg News and Advance:
If the nuclear renaissance is on the way, Lynchburg, home to AREVA NP, might be the new Florence, Italy.
Through a partnership with Maryland-based utility Constellation Energy and Virginia-based BWX Technologies and about $600 m in funding from French utility company EDF, AREVA would like to be one of the first to build its Evolutionary Power Reactor in the United States. The new company, UniStar Nuclear, has made its intentions known to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that it plans to submit applications within the next 12 months to build two AREVA reactors, the first in Maryland.
