Safe and Secure | AREVA North America: Next Energy Blog



All safe and secure (as designed).

Or as Scott Peterson, senior vice president at the Nuclear Energy Institute, put it:

“Nuclear energy facilities in the path of Hurricane Irene have responded well and responded safely to this storm…Every facility was ready to take any steps necessary to maintain safety, thanks to careful planning and deliberate storm preparations several days in advance of the storm.

Highly trained operators and emergency response personnel were stationed at the plants throughout the weekend and were prepared to take actions beyond their usual duties to protect the power plants and communities that surround them. In the aftermath of the storm, operators are undertaking complete inspections of nuclear energy facilities to ensure that systems and equipment were not affected by the storm and that the plant’s condition is safe.”
