Westinghouse Columbia Fuel Facility Continues Path Forward on Confirmatory Action Letter
At the public meeting, the following information was provided to the community by Westinghouse executive leadership:
- The company’s leadership and oversight changes at Columbia Fuel Fabrication Facility
- The comprehensive corrective actions Westinghouse is taking to address causes of the event
- The change management being undertaken at the facility to address nuclear safety and nuclear safety culture.
Currently, the conversion area of the facility is off-line, however, in late September, customer shipments of fuel began again as those activities are not within scope of the CAL. The company expects to file a final letter of completion of actions with the NRC in early October and expects to restart the conversion area following confirmation by the NRC.
