Satsop Business Park perfect for Hollywood


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

This almost 500-foot-tall cooling tower at the Satsop Business Park dwarfs operations manager Ross Read. The tower features a monolith-like support recalling Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey." The park is promoting itself as an excellent movie set.

The base of the two towers have supports spreading around the 400-foot bottom at Satsop Business Park. It's a perfect setting for a sci-fi film, business-park promoters say.

The interior of this more-developed tower features walkways and cooling devices. Work on the nuclear plants stopped three decades ago. At its peak, about 5,000 workers were on site, according to the Satsop Business Park.

Nuclear-plant worker Homer Simpson oversees a model of piping at the unfinished Satsop plant. "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening featured the plant in one episode.
