Land purchased for planned new nuclear reactors. The article is clearly a straight press release with lots of unconditional statements.

What is the Westinghouse reactor design, and what is the timeline for this development? I assume it is many years away, as it is 10 years old already.

Hold it right there. Where can you buy a nuclear power station for a mere 10bn these days? cf Hinkley C.

Each of the reactors will take about four years to build.
