NRC staff to meet with Constellation on Sept. 19 in Baltimore to discuss performance of company’s nuclear plant fleet

Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will meet with senior management from Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, LLC, on Wednesday, Sept. 19 to discuss topics related to the performance of the company’s nuclear power plants.

Constellation operates a fleet of nuclear power plants, including Calvert Cliffs, in Lusby (Calvert County), Md.; Ginna, in Ontario (Wayne County), N.Y.; and Nine Mile Point, in Scriba (Oswego County), N.Y.

The purpose of this meeting, which will be open to the public, is for Constellation to brief the NRC on activities and licensing actions involving its plants. It is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Hotel, at 550 Light St. in Baltimore. The session will take place in the Guilford Room.

This will be what is known as an NRC Category 1 meeting. That is, it will be a session with one company to discuss particular regulatory issues regarding specific facilities. Following the business portion of the meeting, members of the public will have an opportunity to discuss with NRC staff topics such as Constellation’s performance and the role of the NRC in ensuring safe plant operation.
