NRC finalizes environmental study for nuclear plant license extension

NRC finalizes environmental study of Seabrook nuclear license extension

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published its final report on the environmental impacts of renewing the operating license of the Seabrook nuclear power plant in New Hampshire.

NRC staff concluded that the impacts would not preclude renewing the license for another 20 years. The Seabrook plant is a single-unit reactor with an extended license now set to expire March 15, 2030. Plant operator NextEra Energy Seabrook LLC submitted the renewal application May 25, 2010.

The supplemental environmental impact statement is available on the NRC’s website.
