ANO stator

Investigators from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission are still unable to explain why a crane accident at the Arkansas Nuclear One nuclear power plant which killed one twenty-four year old employee and injured eight others happened.  On Thursday night a meeting was held at the nuclear power plant in Russellville, Arkansas to discuss the findings where about 90 people showed up.

Workers were attempting to move a generator stator, which weighs some 525 tons, when the crane failed and dropped the stator.  An investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is
still underway.
