Calvert Cliffs 3?
The initial moves to get a third plant at the Calvert Cliffs site are underway. This article indicates that loan guarantees are being sought for a joint project with Areva to increase generating capacity at that site. Calvert Cliffs 1 and 2 are Combustion Engineering PWR plants rated 2700 MWt and 873/862 MWe respectively and which entered service in 1975 and 1977 respectively.
