Davis-Besse to install new Rx vessel head in 2011

Because of pressure from the NRC, Davis-Besse will get its new reactor vessel head in a 2011 shutdown, instead of waiting through until a previously scheduled time in 2014. Several sources are reporting that the head is ready but still in France, awaiting shipment by Areva. With any luck, the plant will get itself off the radar screen after this happens.
