ANS Friday Nuclear Matinee: Decommissioning in Action

ANS Friday Nuclear MatineeThis week’s matinee is a documentary of sorts, set to music, showing the decommissioning process undertaken at the former Yankee Atomic Electric plant at Rowe, Massachusetts.  The heavy work to remove the power plant from the site stretched from 2003 to 2007, and much of it is shown in this several section video set to music.  The video is entertaining, but also quite instructive.

You will need to download the video to be able to see the several years-long process of completely dismantling this nuclear plant compressed into just a few minutes. (Note: You may want to turn down the volume prior to starting the video, as the music is fairly loud.)

To see the history of this plant, read our earlier article on Yankee Atomic Electric.
