Bellefonte moving forward
On August 24th we noted here that TVA was moving toward finishing one or both B&W plants at the Bellefonte site; today we have reports that TVA has completed a contract with AREVA (that's a foreign concern, folks) to finish one of the plants. This article gives brief details. One wonders whether or not Babcock & Wilcox was consulted, or considered since that company was the original reactor vendor. It may indeed be the case that B&W is no longer in a position to act as vendor for such large plants.
