Financing problems at the American Centrifuge Plant

USEC is slowing down its work on the American Centrifuge Plant (ACP) at Piketon, Ohio due to delay with getting a $2 billion loan guarantee from DOE. The corporation applied for the loan guarantee in June 2008, but did not yet get an approval. The total cost of the facility is estimated to be $3.5 billion. It's expected capacity is 3.8 million SWU a year.
