Seabrook nuclear power plant to address concrete erosion

The Associated Press

SEABROOK (AP) — The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it will move forward with its review of Seabrook Station nuclear power plant's license renewal process after accepting the owner's initial proposal for addressing concrete erosion in the New Hampshire plant.

The Portsmouth Herald reports the commission required that NextEra Energy submit preliminary plans for addressing alkali-silica reaction in Seabrook Station's structures before commencing with the review of the license renewal process.

The commission's review is now expected to be completed by August 2018.

If approved, Seabrook Station's license would be extended to 2050. It is currently set to expire in 2030.

The chemical reaction is commonly found in structures like bridges and dams and can lead to gradual movement of concrete
