NRC, MAINE YANKEE OFFICIALS TO DISCUSS CABLE SEPARATION ISSUES

The Maine Yankee Atomic Power Company's approach to resolving cable separation issues at the Maine Yankee nuclear power plant will be the subject of a management meeting between the Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff and utility officials on Tuesday, July 22. Maine Yankee is located in Wiscasset, Maine.

Scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. in the public meeting room of the NRC Region I office in King of Prussia, Pa., the session will be open for public observation.

The proper separation of cables is important in nuclear power plants to ensure that if one or more set of cables is damaged, the plant will be able to achieve a safe shutdown.
