Title: San Onofre nuclear power plant: Fukushima USA?
Date: Feb. 5, 2013
Arnie Gundersen, chief engineer for Fairewinds Energy Education: If I were there I would be very concerned.
The new steam generators are supposed to last [four or forty?] years and they only lasted ten months.
So starting that plant back up is an experiment and I don’t think we should experiment with Southern California. [...]
It’s the worst plant [for evacuation plans], you’ve got seismic risks, and you’ve got these steam generators that are just an experiment waiting to go wrong. [...]
