NRC advisory panel approves AP1000 reactor design
Westinghouse Electric's AP1000 reactor design is safe, according to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards. "We conclude that there is reasonable assurance that the revised design can be built and operated without undue risk to the health and safety of the public," said Said Abdel-Khalik, chairman of the advisory group. The NRC will evaluate the committee's findings before making its final decision on the AP1000 design. Star Tribune (Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.)/The Associated Press
