PLYMOUTH — The Nuclear Decommissioning Citizens Advisory Panel has scheduled a special meeting from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Plymouth Community Intermediate School to get information on Entergy’s recently announced plan to sell Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station to Holtec International after the reactor shuts down in June 2019.
Holtec has joined with a Canadian company called SNC Lavalin under Comprehensive Decommissioning International, the company that will do the decommissioning. In addition to the reactors, Entergy will turn over the spent fuel on the site and the $1 billion decommissioning trust fund for Pilgrim.
In its announcement last week, Holtec pledged to transfer all of Pilgrim’s 4,000 radioactive spent fuel assemblies into heavy dry casks. The company also has set a timeline to have decommissioning and site cleanup finished within eight years.
Representatives from Entergy, Holtec and Comprehensive Decommissioning International will attend the meeting to answer questions for the citizens panel and the public. The school is at 117 Long Pond Road.
