Talen Energy abandons Bell Bend nuclear plant project
BERWICK, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) - Talen Energy announced Wednesday it's withdrawing its license application for a second proposed nuclear power plant in Luzerne County.
The company sent a written request to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, saying it sees no "viable path" to obtaining a license for its proposed Bell Bend nuclear power plant.
The company first filed an application in October 2008 to build the plant adjacent to the company's existing Susquehanna nuclear power plant.
In it's letter to the NRC, Talen Energy says the project became unworkable when AREVA, the company that developed the reactor design for Bell Bend, asked the NRC in February 2015 to suspend the design certification process.
Since that time Talen had suspended it's license application, now it's asking the application be withdrawn entirely.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Press Release
No: IV-16-018 August 31, 2016
NRC Issues Confirmatory Action Letter to Power Resources, Inc.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued a Confirmatory Action Letter to Power Resources Inc. of Casper, Wyo., documenting actions that the company has agreed to take before resuming shipments of radioactive sludge to a Utah facility.
The letter formalizes commitments company officials made to the NRC following two incidents in which containers of radioactive barium sulfate sludge, a byproduct of uranium ore processing, arrived at the facility in Blanding, Utah, with some external contamination from leakage during transport. The incidents occurred in August 2015 and March 2016.
You are invited to the Three Mile Island Community Information Night on Thursday, Sept. 8 from 5 pm to 8 pm. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
