NRC to continue review of Seabrook

(Continued)

The NRC has also put together an agency-wide team of experts on the topic as well as reached out to its foreign counterparts who have experienced ASR in their nuclear power plants in other countries.

Both Miller and Cook insisted the review of Seabrook Station’s ASR issue is ongoing because “there’s more that needs to be done” to determine the impact of degradation on the concrete structures there.

“More to be done by Seabrook Station,” Cook said. “And more to be done by the NRC.”
