ABSTRACT
The article reports on the issues associated with the nuclear accident at the Three Mile Island nuclear plant in Pennsylvania which have made the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consider shut downs in several nuclear plants as well as the nuclear reactors designed and built by Babcock & Wilcox Co. (B & W). It states that the critics did not doubt on what the NCR's decision would be but stressed out the good safety records of most of the plants. It adds that NRC issued a shutdown agreement, however, only after the facilities volunteer to suspend operations at the nine B & W plants. It also notes that the plants have agreed with NCR's conditions which include the inspection of reactors, modification of emergency core-cooling systems, and improvement in the training for plant technicians.
