PPL fires and sues its siren installer

PPL Corp. has fired and sued the Boston company it hired to replace the siren system around the Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Salem Township.

PPL claims the siren vendor, Acoustic Technology, failed to deliver on the contract because some of the 76 warning sirens it installed in a 25-mile radius around the plant failed to sound during tests earlier this year.

Attempts to reach Acoustic Technology were unsuccessful.

PPL's existing siren system, installed 25 years ago, continues to be fully functional and in use until the company selects a new vendor. The sirens are intended to alert the public to emergencies at the plant or in the community.
