FirstEnergy may get record fine

OAK HARBOR, Ohio - The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has left open the possibility of issuing a record-setting fine against FirstEnergy Corp. by finalizing its earlier determination that the six-inch rust cavity in Davis-Besse’s reactor head was of "high safety significance."

In a letter Thursday to Lew Myers, chief operating officer of the utility’s nuclear subsidiary, the NRC said it was standing by its "red" determination for 10 violations related to the rust problem, the worst corrosion of its kind in U.S. nuclear history. The "red" classification is the most severe and will be used as a basis for determining a fine or other penalties at a later date, including possible criminal charges, officials said.
