Nuclear Regulatory Commission
According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, there is “absolutely no risk” to public health.
More work and hundreds of hours of additional inspections are planned over the coming year to help continue improving safety at the Palisades Nuclear Plant in southwestern Michigan, officials said.
A special federal inspection is planned of DTE Energy’s Fermi 2 nuclear power plant this year because the Monroe-area facility’s reactor was shut down too many times in 2012, officials said.
An environmental coalition is making more arguments against a proposed addition to DTE Energy Co.’s Fermi nuclear plant in southeastern Michigan.
A federal report is criticizing DTE Energy Co. for what it says are maintenance failures leading up to the June breakdown of a cooling water pump at the Fermi 2 nuclear power plant.
The Palisades nuclear plant in southwestern Michigan returned to service Thursday following a shutdown that began earlier this month because of a minor steam leak.
DTE Energy wants to keep the power on at its Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant for years to come.
