NRC plans Lynchburg meeting on B&W facility review

Monday - 4/22/2013, 4:10am EDT

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) -- Federal regulators and Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Operations Group will discuss a review of the company's nuclear fuel fabrication facility at a meeting this week in Lynchburg.

The 2012 performance review by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff assessed the facility's performance in security, safety operations, radiological controls, facility support and licensing.

The meeting is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday at Lynchburg City Hall. It's open to the public. But the NRC says the security assessment won't be discussed publicly because of the information's sensitive nature.

The NRC says the assessment didn't find any areas that need improvement during the review period.
