SC utility slow to fix nuclear safety equipment
Progress Energy Carolinas faces increased federal oversight as a result of problems cited by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in a recently issued notice of violation.
Progress Energy Carolinas provided false information and failed for months to fix important nuclear safety equipment at its Darlington County power plant last year, federal regulators said.
The utility company faces increased federal oversight as a result of problems cited by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in a notice of violation issued Tuesday.
Company officials say Progress did not try to mislead federal regulators and company workers attempted to fix problems discovered in a generator during the fall of 2008. The problems have now been resolved, said Andy Cole, a spokesman for Progress.
