I-TEAM: FLAW FOUND IN HARRIS NUCLEAR POWER PLANT REACTOR HEAD
NEW HILL, N.C. (WTVD) — The ABC11 I-Team has learned of a new problem at the Duke Energy Shearon Harris power plant in New Hill.
The plant was off-line for refueling when a so-called “flaw” was discovered in the reactor head.
The reactor head is the cap to the nuclear reactor that can be removed for refueling and repairs. The “flaw” occurred close to one of the 65 monitoring rods that run through the cap and into the reactor.
