Albany, NY – Yesterday, the state learned that hundreds of faulty bolts were discovered within the reactor at the Indian Point Unit 2 Plant. This is the latest in a long series of incidents that raise deep concerns about the management, maintenance and equipment standards at this plant.
While there is no immediate danger to public health and safety, this troubling news further validates the State’s ongoing investigation into the operations of this aging power plant and our position that it should not be relicensed. New York State will continue to investigate every facet of the plant’s operations and safety preparedness while ensuring that these critical defects are addressed immediately.
