  1. Safety probe for TVA nuclear plant

    UNITED STATES: The country’s nuclear watchdog ordered a probe into a Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) plant in Alabama on Tuesday after finding that an emergency cooling system failure could have been a serious safety problem.

    The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued a rare “red” finding against the Browns Ferry nuclear plant near Athens after looking into how a heat removal valve became jammed shut.

    The agency said the TVA, the US’s largest publicly owned power company, must pay for detailed inspections of the plant’s performance, safety culture and organisation.



  2. Officials admit to nuclear plant fire

    SWEDEN: A small fire broke out in Ringhals nuclear power plant earlier this week as workers carried out maintenance on a reactor containment unit, officials admitted on Thursday.

    The unit, which contains one of Ringhals’ four reactors, had been shut down for maintenance since April 2 and all radioactive material had been moved to another building.

    They added that radiation levels within the unit were not heightened by the incident and no one was injured.
