Terrapower was founded by a software engineer and entrepreneur Bill Gates, who is also president of the company.
Currently, companies are evaluating several potential locations in the state.
Governor Gordon said in a press release, “I am delighted to see Wyoming selected for this demonstration pilot project, as our great state is the perfect location for this type of innovative utility facility and our workforce. experienced coal workers look forward to the jobs that the project will provide. “
The development of a nuclear power facility will bring tax revenue to the state budget of Wyoming, which has seen a significant decline in recent years.
This demonstration project creates opportunities for PacifiCorp and local communities to provide well-paying, long-term jobs to workers in Wyoming, according to the announcement.
The location of the Natrium demonstration plant is expected to be announced by the end of 2021.
