— Still without a decision on whether to build a new nuclear generator in either Louisiana or Mississippi, the nuclear unit of Entergy Corp. said Tuesday that it had agreed on a major order for reactor components.

Terms of the agreement between Entergy Nuclear and GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy were not disclosed. Entergy Nuclear said the order would ensure that critical parts are delivered on time should the reactor be built.

Entergy has not decided whether to build a plant, but is looking at the sites of the current River Bend nuclear plant at St. Francisville, La., and the Grand Gulf nuclear plant at Port Gibson, Miss., as locations for its next nuclear generator.
