Chris Thompson and Tom Palmisano of SCE,
1. How does the recent ruling from the NRC effect the bid process for the cask at San Onofre? The 16 June ruling http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-06-25/html/2014-14867.htm
2. Will there be a delay in choosing the cask company?
3, Will the bid re-open for another round?
4. Can we the CEP members have a copy of the bid package? (please consider this a request by me)
5. Would you consider a 3 month delay so we could have another event with all the casks companies bidding can present to the public? It is clear that no one wants another “Steam Generator debacle” with the Cask System we choose. It is important to choose the right casks instead of having to redo them in 20 or 40 yrs if we can choose one that may last for 100 yrs.
It was said at our 1st event on dry cask storage that there has never been a problem. That according the NRC records is not the case it seems. The first one on this list is Indian Point the only nuclear plant in a more populated area than San Onofre.
Attached is an PDF version of Information Notice 2014-09, Spent Fuel Storage or Transportation System Misloading, dated June 20, 2014 (ML14121A469), that has been posted to the NRR GCC Web, along with the URL for Web access to generic communications files on the NRC Homepage:http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/ doc-collections/gen-comm/info- notices/2014/.
