The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff has scheduled a regulatory performance meeting to discuss the H.B. Robinson nuclear power plant. The meeting is scheduled on Thursday, August 25 in Hartsville to discuss corrective actions with findings at the plant.
Officials will discuss the performance indicator for unplanned shutdowns in the third quarter of 2010 and related issues to an emergency diesel generator breaker, operator training objectives and failure to implement some procedures during the March 2010 shutdown. Two inspections have been completed by the NRC staff and their report said the corrective actions taken by the company were appropriate.
Discussions are regarding a “white” performance indicator and three “white” inspection findings in the third quarter of 2010. The NRC evaluates regulatory performance at commercial nuclear power plants with a color-coded system which classifies findings as green, white, yellow or red in increasing order of safety significance.
The meeting is open to the public and is scheduled at 2 p.m. in the Hartsville Public Library, 147 W. College Avenue in Hartsville. Additional information is available on the NRC website.
