Edison workers to remove nuclear fuel from San Onofre Reactor 3

Author: 3 Comments Share:

Southern California Edison workers will remove the fuel rods inside the disabled Unit 3 reactor, and move them into storage in mid-September, Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspector Gregory Warnick told The Associated Press on Monday.

Operator Southern California Edison has said it’s focusing on repairing the less-damaged Unit 2 reactor, which the utility has proposed may be restarted at reduced power.

  1. @Lucas – did you happen to read the comment by “norbu” at enenews saying he saw a huge nuclear “pressure vessel” being transported on California roads?

    What’s up with that? Are they repairing SONGS on the QT or building a new reactor quietly? (sorry if my question is dumb but I don’t know what a pressure vessel is for)
