Okay, you had me scratching my head on this one. What would the NRC do with a 251-12? A giant paper weight? Now that I've read the news release
the new prime movers are for a private company, Shaw AREVA MOX Services, LLC, for an expansion of the DOE's Savannah River site. Other than regulatory oversight the NRC has nothing to do with this.
As for the Tier 2 emissions compliance, to the best of my knowledge they have not adapted EFI to a 251 yet. When I went through Beliot three years ago they had just stopped a program to modify an O-P with EFI. Hopefully something is in the works.
