Newly approved Georgia reactors log first Event Report

The ink is barely dry on the license approvals for two new reactors at the Vogtle plant in Georgia, and Southern Co. is already in violation of NRC rules. Plant management reported this morning to the NRC that a licensed contract manager “intentionally failed to implement a procedure change as instructed by management.” The violation, which took place March 1, apparently involved failure to implement NRC-required Fitness for Duty (FFD) testing for employees working on Units 3 and 4. Southern reported the incident as “an intentional act that casts doubt on the integrity of the FFD program.” The manager’s site access has been revoked.
