Final Shipment of Original Steam Generator to Utah to Begin
-- December 04, 2012
Southern California Edison (SCE):
Southern California Edison (SCE) is about to begin shipping the
last of four retired steam generator lower assemblies from the
San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station via truck to a disposal
WHAT: site in Clive, Utah. As at the plant, safety is the No. 1
priority during the transport, which will safely pass through San
Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino counties before entering
Nevada and Utah.
The steam generator is approximately 700,000 pounds and will be
transported by a special 400-foot-long vehicle. The steam
generator contains extremely low levels of radiation; the
exposure that a person could receive standing five-to-10 feet
away from the transport for an hour would be equivalent to a
dental x-ray. The transport will travel by night in California
and take approximately three weeks to arrive in Utah.
WHEN: Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012
TIME: 9:30 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time)
WHERE: The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, Old Pacific Coast
