Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will meet with officials of Consolidated Edison Company of New York on Thursday, February 12, to review the results of a special inspection conducted at the Indian Point 2 nuclear power plant. ConEd owns and operates the plant, located in Buchanan, N.Y.
The architect and engineering inspection involves reviews of the plant's design and configuration, as well as its conformance with the utility's safety analysis report. The inspection team was made up of engineers from the NRC and design specialists from Stone & Webster, an architect/engineering firm contracted by the agency to assist with the work.
The Indian Point 2 inspection was conducted from January 5 through February 6.
The NRC has been conducting the special inspections at nuclear plants across the country because of findings that some facilities were being operated in a manner that was inconsistent with their current design and licensing bases. Conformance to those bases is important to assure that plant systems, structures and components can perform their safety functions reliably and in a manner consistent with operating licenses issued by the NRC.
The inspection exit meeting is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. in the Energy Information Center at the plant, at Broadway and Bleakley avenues in Buchanan. It will be open to the public for observation.
