Massachusetts officials have dropped a lawsuit against Holtec over $1B Nuclear cleanup

Holtec Settles Legal Battle with Massachusetts Over $1B Nuclear Plant Cleanup,  ENR, 19 June 20, Massachusetts officials have dropped a lawsuit against Holtec International, now site owner and intended cleanup manager of the closed Pilgrim Nuclear Plant near Plymouth that allows the $1.13 billion-decontamination and decommissioning of the 670-MW site to move forward to be completed in 2027.

The state also dropped its challenge to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s transfer of the site operating license from Entergy Nuclear to Holtec.

Under the agreement reached June 16, Holtec will set aside $193 million of the plant’s decommission trust fund to pay for cost increases, project delays and possible hidden contamination.

Once cleanup is competed, $38.8 million will be set aside to cover the cost to transport spent nuclear fuel stored at the site to out-of-state storage. ….. https://www.enr.com/articles/49588-holtec-settles-legal-battle-with-massachusetts-over-1b-nuclear-plant-cleanup
