The NextEra Energy Seabrook Station nuclear power plant is expected to receive its long-sought 20-year license extension from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission by month’s end.
NRC notification comes after important recommendations and positive reviews over the past four weeks on both the plant’s application to extend its operating license to 2050, as well as its request to amend that license to accommodate how it will address its unique concrete problem of alkali-silica reaction as the plant ages. The notice comes 8½ years after NextEra began its bid for a license extension.
