Nuclear agency holds meeting on SC plant fire

Jun 2, 2010 4:07:00 AM - thestate.com
Federal nuclear regulators are meeting to discuss a special inspection of a South Carolina plant that shut down earlier this year.

Staff from the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission are in Hartsville on Wednesday to talk about safety at Progress Energy's nearby Robinson plant.

Two fires happened March 28 in the plant's electrical system. The commission says the plant and public were never in danger but decided that issues raised in an initial inspection warranted further study.

The plant entered a refueling outage originally planned for mid-April and remains shut down. Last month, the commission sent in a special inspection team to review the events that led to shutdown.

The agency will issue a report after the public hearing.
