Davis-Besse closer to startup

The reactor vessel closure head repairs and modifications are complete, according to FirstEnergy Nuclear. According to MarketWatch, a town meeting was held on June 4th to inform the NRC and the public. Alleviation of the stress corrosion cracking of the CRDM nozzles is assured for the interim period until an entirely new head is installed four years from now.

The plant is expected online sometime in July, with proper approvals.
