FULTON -  A nuclear reactor vessel head has arrived in Mid-Missouri and will be unveiled late Monday morning.

This multi-million dollar piece of equipment provides energy at Ameren's Missouri Callaway Energy Center.

Ameren is a holding company for several power companies and energy companies. 

The new nuclear vessel was transported to Missouri by the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. However, before making its way to Mid-Mo, the vessel was shipped from Spain and New Orleans. 

Callaway County will benefit because of the improved reliability of the system and it will provide cleaner energy for customers.  The new vessel head will cost about $145 million. It will also generate about 20 percent of electricity to all of Ameren's customers. 

Ameren Missouri is calling the installment a "necessary installment," in order to maintain being green. Callaway County is recognized as one of the highest performing non-carbon producing generating centers in the United States.

Ameren will install the new nuclear vessel in the fall. The unveiling of the vessel begins Monday morning at 11.
