GE calls for shut-down tests on reactors worldwide

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy has warned operators of boiling water reactors (BWR) worldwide - including 35 in the US - that the plants could fail to shut automatically during an earthquake, potentially risking the safety of the power plant.

In an event notification posted by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission this week, GE Hitachi told nuclear operators to conduct tests to determine what conditions would prevent the reactors from shutting safely during an earth quake.
