A SECTOR DESTINED FOR LONG-TERM GROWTH
There are 430 power plants in operation around the world and new ones being built will result in a 50% increase in nuclear capacity between now and 2025. Such growth coupled with life extensions and safety improvements for operating plants, fuel cycle, waste processing & storage or the decommissioning of plants at the ends of their live show just how great WNE's potential is.
