Westinghouse is preparing a move back into the nuclear fuel market as a primary UF6 producer at its Springfields plant in the UK, something it began thinking about after Russia invaded Ukraine in late February but only publicly revealed this week. However, the company is evidently still short of the long-term contracts it needs to justify such a step, and once a decision is made it could take at least four years to restart the plant.
