Panel: Serious problems at Yankee

"There are significant cultural problems that will be very difficult to change — the biggest is resources. They are not spending enough," said panel member Arnold Gundersen of Burlington. "They are penny-wise and pound-foolish." [...] Raymond Shadis, senior technical adviser for the New England Coalition, said the review was a pale substitute for an independent safety assessment, or ISA, which the coalition has sought for years. "The panel findings are just not enforceable. Could that be why NEC fought so hard for an NRC-conducted ISA and not this adolescent version of nuclear trivia?" Shadis said.
