Plans for third nuclear reactor at Nine Mile Point withdrawn

Nine Mile Point nuclear power plant New York third reactor plans end NRC

UniStar Nuclear Energy has withdrawn an application to build a third nuclear reactor at the Nine Mile Point nuclear power plant in New York.

According to The Associated Press, UniStar said it was unable to build the plant because it was not picked for a federal loan guarantee.

UniStar submitted the application in 2008 to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, but sent a letter a year later asking to temporarily suspend the application process until further notice, the article said.
