Permanently closed U.S. nuclear reactor should be "autopsied" 

Beyond Nuclear is asking the U.S. Nuclear Regulator Commission (NRC) to verify that a pressure vessel head installed in the now closed Crystal River nuclear reactor in Florida came from the controversial Creusot Forge in France, currently under investigation. Beyond Nuclear is also recommending that the NRC seize this opportunity to "autopsy" the permanently closed Florida reactor. This would help to establish whether manufacturing flaws that have been found in components made by Le Creusot, could also be present in the 17 operating reactors identified by Areva that have installed Creusot-forged parts.
