New Scana Nuclear Plant Cited for Safety Violation, NRC Says

April 22 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said inspectors found an apparent safety violation at Scana Corp.’s nuclear power plant in South Carolina.

The NRC found that the anchorage and spacing of rebar in the floor and walls of a new unit at the V.C. Summer nuclear station didn’t comply with code requirements, according to a news release posted today on the agency’s website.

The NRC will hold a meeting on April 30 to discuss the finding, which has been initially classified as having a low to moderate safety significance, the agency said in the release.

Scana’s South Carolina Electric & Gas utility is building two new reactors near Jenkinsville, South Carolina, about 26 miles (42 kilometers) northwest of Columbia, South Carolina.
