NRC to meet with TVA over Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant

ATHENS, Ala. (AP) — Federal regulators will meet with Tennessee Valley Authority officials Tuesday to discuss the results of a special inspection at Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission cited “declining regulatory performance” as the reason for the inspection and 1 p.m. public meeting in the Training Center Auditorium at the plant site near Athens.

The NRC will use inspection results to determine what caused the declining performance and whether the agency need to take additional action. In late 2007, Browns Ferry Unit 1 had a moderately degraded or “yellow” performance indicator because of a high number of automatic shutdowns. Previous inspections evaluated the shutdowns causes and did not identify any significant safety issues.
