TVAannounces license application

NuStart Energy Consortium and the Tennessee Valley Authority submitted an application for a combined operating license for Bellefonte Nuclear Plant near Scottsboro.

NuStart and TVA want to build a Westinghouse dual-unit AP1000 reactor at the Bellefonte facility. U.S. Rep. Bud Cramer, D-Huntsville, applauded the application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Tuesday at a press conference at the U.S. Capitol Building.

According to a release from Cramer’s office, the NRC should take between three and four years to review Bellefonte’s application. If approved, Bellefonte would be one of the few nuclear facilities in the country in more than 30 years to receive a license.
