The Politics of Nuclear Energy

#81 10-30-2019, 07:18 PM (This post was last modified: 10-30-2019, 07:19 PM by HHD.)

Yuriy O. Nedashkovsky
Mr. Nedashkovskiy was born on April, 14, 1961 in Kyiv. In 1983 he graduated from the Odessa Polytechnic Institute majoring in “Nuclear Plants and Installations” specialization.

From 1983 to 2000, he worked at the Khmelnytsky Nuclear Power Plant, where he passed the career path from lineman of border equipment to Director General of station.

From 2000 to 2003, he was President of SE NNEGC Energoatom.

From 2003 to 2005, he held the position of assistant consultant of national deputy of Ukraine.

2005 – 2006 – President of SE NNEGC Energoatom.

2006 – 2008 – Deputy Minister of Fuel and Energy of Ukraine.

2008 – 2012 – President of SE NNEGC Energoatom

Yuriy Nedashkovskiy was appointed as a President of SE NNEGC Energoatom by Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine ... ... 05.03.2014.


On the board of Holtec International, whom is building SMRs in Ukraine, with a factory in NJ, USA, paid for by taxpayer monies.
Nuclear Licensing Engineer (SMR) - Holtec International ...
SMR LLC, a subsidiary of Holtec International, is located at the Corporate Technology Center in Camden, New Jersey.

...Supporters of the storage site have said it would bring an estimated $3 billion in capital investments to the region, and create about 100 jobs. Project opponents include environmental groups, at least 12 local governments, and several state lawmakers including the governor, who have said they are concerned the temporary storage site could become a permanent repository absent a federal solution.

Another CISF is being planned in Texas. Interim Storage Partners, a joint venture of Waste Control Specialists and Orano CIS, wants to build and operate a storage site in Andrews County, a project also under review by the NRC with a decision expected next year.

Tons of Used Nuclear Fuel
Holtec, based in Jupiter, Florida, in its initial application for the HI-STORE facility said its plans include “storage of up to 8,680 metric tons of uranium in commercial used fuel (500 canisters) with future amendments for up to 10,000 storage canisters total.” Holtec said sites across the U.S., primarily at nuclear power plants, have “more than 80,000 metric tons of used nuclear fuel in storage and more is being generated every day at a rate of 2,000 metric tons per year.”

Holtec has said “The HI-STORE CISF provides a site to aggregate the used nuclear fuel canisters presently stored across the country at independent used fuel storage installations into one secure location.”

The Beyond Nuclear group has said the NRC cannot issue Holtec a license for the New Mexico facility because the company’s application includes a provision that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) could be the owner of the facility’s nuclear waste. The group has said approval of the application with that provision would violate the Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA), which prevents the government from taking ownership of nuclear waste from private utilities before a permanent repository is in operation. There is no federal repository for nuclear waste.

The NRC in May 2019 dismissed legal challenges to the storage site from groups including Beyond Nuclear, the Sierra Club, and others. Holtec applied for a license from the NRC in 2017 to build and operate the New Mexico facility, which it said would hold waste from reactors across the U.S. “temporarily until a permanent, federally-managed repository is established.”

Kevin Kamps, a radioactive waste specialist with Beyond Nuclear, told POWER on June 9, “I think the real motivation for the nuclear power industry is to transfer the responsibility for waste to the DOE, which means the taxpayers, and all it does is put it in a temporary location. [The waste] could wind up going right back to the East Coast where it came from. That’s a multiplication of the transportation risks for no good reason.”

Challenge to Earlier Rulings
Beyond Nuclear in a June 4 news release said, “Since it contemplates that the federal government would become the owner of the spent fuel during transportation to and storage at its CISF, Holtec’s license application should have been dismissed at the outset.” The group said it is challenging the NRC’s earlier rulings in favor of licensing a “so-called consolidated interim storage facility [in New Mexico] for up to 173,600 metric tons of irradiated nuclear fuel, more than twice what currently exists in the country.”


Holtec, Ukraine plan to build SMRs in 2020s; Canada to publish SMR roadmap in the fall
Holtec's SMR-160 design is a pressurized water reactor (PWR) with passive cooling features. Under the agreement, Ukraine would look to deploy Holtec's SMR-160 design by 2026-2030, Holtec said in a statement March 1. As a pilot project, Energoatom wants to replace two VVER-440 units at the Rivne nuclear power complex with SMR-160 reactors.

***So busy hating our neighbor, we missed the boards 3 billion bucks buried in our own backyard.
Maybe it was because its only 100 jobs for the region.
Florida- New Jersey- UKRAINE...Nuclear: "So What."
A scandal removed prior officer, so Nedashkovskiy got it back in 2014...Under Obama, Biden admin. There was a huge sanction- banks were involved in the take-over.

Similar to the scandal involving the prosecuting attorney Biden also had removed in Ukraine.

Dirty money buried in nuclear septic tanks...

FYI, 15 acres for one.

And note the establishment of the SMR at an existing plant. -As predicted. That's why they're hostile in their takeover of our shuttered plant clean-up and FUEL.
