Workers repair corrosion problem at Beaver Valley nuclear reactor

Repairs have corrected a small corrosion problem in the Unit 2 nuclear reactor vessel head at Energy Harbor Corp.’s Beaver Valley Power Station. According to an April 24 inspection report by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, one of 66 reactor vessel head penetrations was “degraded” and required work before the unit is restarted. The issue was discovered during a routine inspection of the reactor while the unit was offline for refueling.
