Board To Review Browns Ferry Nuclear Performance 5-31-2011

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will discuss the performance of the Tennessee Vally Authority's Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant on Tuesday.
According to an NRC statement, the meeting will be held at the Athens, Ala. plant.
NRC spokesman Roger Hannah said such meetings are held for every nuclear plant and the Browns Ferry discussion “isn’t a result of anything that has happened recently.”
The NRC found that Browns Ferry overall operated safely in 2010 but Hannah said a “red” level violation with a low pressure coolant injection valve in October will be discussed.
He said a recent valve shutdown at Browns Ferry was not “terribly safety significant” since it lasted just 40 minutes.
TVA nuclear spokesman Ray Golden said TVA looks forward to the meeting.
