TMI Alert Contends Application for Plant
On December 22, 2008 the Nuclear Regulatory Commission accepted
PPL Bell Bend LLC, (1) Combined License Application (“COL” or "COLA") for an
Evolutionary Power Reactor (“EPR”) at the Bell Bend Nuclear Power Plant
Docket No. 52-039.
PPL Bell Bend is seeking approval to build and operate an EPR at the site,
approximately seven miles northeast of Berwick. The EPR is an Areva-designed
pressurized water reactor, with a nominal output of approximately 1,600
megawatts of electricity.
March 18, 2009, the NRC announced the opportunity for public
participation in a hearing on a Combined License application for a new reactor at
the Bell Bend site near Berwick. The site is adjacent to the existing two-reactor
Susquehanna Steam Electric Station.
