NRC critical of Mass. nuke plant post-shutdown



Federal nuclear regulators have issued a critical report following the unplanned shutdown of a Massachusetts nuclear power plant in May.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission in a report released Thursday criticized Pilgrim's owners for inadequate training and enforcement of its standards following the automatic shutdown, which occurred as the reactor was being returned to service after a refueling and maintenance outage.
The shutdown was blamed on human error.
