  1. 17 U.S. Nuclear Reactors Use Parts From Forge Under Probe

    By Editors of Power Engineering As promised, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has identified the U.S. nuclear reactors that have parts from Areva SA’s Le Creusot forge. A full 17 reactors incorporate parts from the forge, which is under investigation over allegations of forgery relating to part quality, Reuters reported. Reactors using steam generators from Le Creusot include Beaver Valley 1, Comanche Peak 1, VC Summer, Farley 1&2, South Texas 1&2, Sequohay 1 and Watts Bar 1. Reactors using vessel heads include ANO 2, North Anna 1&2, Surry 1 and Beaver Valley 1. Reactors using pressurizers include Millstone 2 and St. Lucie 1. Reactors using vessels include OPS and OQS and Prairie Island 1&2. NRC announced last week it had notified Areva that it would identify the reactors using parts, unless the company challenged the order. NRC officials have determined the falsification of documents currently doesn’t pose any safety concerns to U.S. nuclear plants. Companies that operate some of the affected reactors, including Xcel Energy, Dominion Resources, NextEra Energy, FirstEnergy and Entergy have all said the components meet their standards of quality. French regulator ASN has said Areva discovered evidence of irregularities in 400 components produced at Le Creusot since 1965. Areva, which is 85 percent owned by the French government, is currently undergoing a restructuring . The European Union approved a move by France to provide Areva with $4.76 billion in aid.
