Company wants to set up munitions plant in West Valley

WEST VALLEY  Dwindling employment in the town of Ashford from job
cutbacks at the West Valley Demonstration Project could be offset if a
proposed munitions reprocessing plant builds a test facility that could
evolve into a full-scale operation. The V. Wyvern Group Limited, an
Amherst-based company, is looking to construct a munitions reprocessing
plant that might ultimately employ 400 workers after a few years. 

The munitions reprocessing plant could be located on the state-owned,
3,000-acre parcel where the West Valley Demonstration Project is
located.  The West Valley Demonstration Project, involving the cleanup
of the former nuclear fuel reprocessing plant, occupies 200-plus acres
of the parcel. Its twin goals are solidification of high-level
radioactive waste, which was completed last fall, and to decontaminate
and decommission the facility by the estimated date of 2023. The work is
performed for the U.S. Department of Energy by West Valley Nuclear
Services. The land is owned by the New York State Energy Research and
Development Authority.
