EUNICE, NEW MEXICO - The Uranium Enrichment Plant being built outside Eunice takes another step toward completion.

The first centrifuge was successfully installed at the National Enrichment Facility just outside town last Thursday.

The plant is owned by Louisiana Energy Services (LES).

When it's completed, the plant should supply 50-percent of the Country's enriched uranium needs.
