Federal report backgrounds Nuclear One accident

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 11:25 AM

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has posted an initial report on the accident Sunday at Arkansas Nuclear One that killed one worker and injured others. Machinery moving a 500-ton generator part failed.

This caused a loss of power and a 3-minute, 50-second delay before emergency power could resume operations including heat removal. The report says the cause of the failure and the extent of the damage still isn't known.
