[quote:Waterbug:MV8xNTM3MTQ2XzM2MTc5OTI1X0E0NjFBMENC] Vermont Yankee is operating without its state permit. Guess it's not that important.. And, they violated an agreement to close in 2012 if they didn't have one. Entergy argues Yankee mishaps don’t count http://www.rutlandherald.com/article/20130216/NEWS02/702169949 [snip] A top executive with Entergy Nuclear tried to convince a skeptical Public Service Board on Friday that problems at the Vermont Yankee plant during the 10 years of Entergy ownership were not relevant to whether the state should allow the plant to run for another 20 years. Twomey and his attorney Robert Juman, of the New York law firm of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, tried to deflect a long list of problems at the Vernon reactor in the 10 years Entergy has owned the plant. Juman raised objection after objection, claiming information about the[b] 2007 and 2008 partial collapse of Yankee’s cooling towers[/b] was not relevant, and that neither were other issues at the plant, including the company’s response to the tritium leak there in 2010. The Department of Public Service is arguing that Entergy has been a poor partner for Vermont in the past 10 years and is not a trustworthy business, citing the numerous problems at the plant and [b]“misleading” testimony from plant executives about the existence of underground pipes carrying radionuclides.[/b] [b]The misinformation, given under oath [/b]to the Public Service Board, led to the disciplining of 11 Entergy Nuclear employees at Vermont Yankee. Twomey also got into a verbal dance with PSB member John Burke, who questioned Twomey about[b] Entergy’s intentions in signing an agreement with the state in 2002 when it purchased the reactor promising not to challenge state authority over the plant and not to operate it beyond March 21, 2012, if it didn’t have a new state permit in hand.[/b] [/quote]
