Huntsville-based Teledyne Brown Engineering will take part in the completion of the Bellefonte Nuclear Generating Station near Scottsboro. The Tennessee Valley Authority shut down the plant in Hollywood in 1988.
Nuclear Development LLC, led by Chattanooga-based developer Franklin L. Haney, purchased the plant at a November 2016 auction with a winning bid of $111 million.
Last month, SNC-Lavalin signed a letter of agreement with Nuclear Development LLC to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services to complete the Bellefonte Nuclear Generating Station once the facility is acquired. Teledyne Brown will provide engineering and technical expertise for the SNC-Lavalin team.
Teledyne Brown has been supporting energy and nuclear industries for more than five decades.
“We are pleased to participate in the completion of Bellefonte in support of renewed interest in nuclear power as an energy source that is necessary for the overall energy portfolio for the United States,” said Jan Hess, president of Teledyne Brown Engineering. “This project will create opportunities and jobs for the local economy in North Alabama and the Tennessee Valley.”
