Additional Details:
This is an artist's rendering of the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant - the nation's first large scale breeder demonstration plant. A breeder is a nuclear power plant that produces more fuel than it uses as it generates electricity. The Clinch River Plant is to be built on a site on the Clinch River in Oak Ridge, TN. With licensing approval, actual site work could begin by 1983. Although it's not a commercial sized plant, it could start producing electricity for 200,000 residents in the Tennessee Valley Service Area by 1989.
