PSC to Review Status of Crystal River Nuclear Plant


TALLAHASSEE — Florida Public Service Commissioner (PSC) Eduardo Balbis, as Prehearing Officer, will hold a conference on Tuesday, October 30, to review the status of Crystal River Nuclear Unit 3 (CR3), managed by Duke Energy since its merger with Progress Energy Florida (PEF) in July.

In 2009, during a maintenance and upgrade project, a crack occurred in the concrete containment building that surrounds CR3’s nuclear reactor.  The PSC opened Docket No. 100437 to oversee PEF’s engineering analyses and to fully investigate the extent of CR3’s extended outage and its replacement fuel and projected repair costs.

Regular status conferences allow the Commission to gather further information on the decision to repair or retire CR3.

The conference is set for the following time and location:

Tuesday, October 30, 2012
9:30 a.m.
Betty Easley Conference Center
Joseph P. Cresse Hearing Room (Room 148)
4075 Esplanade Way
Tallahassee, Florida
