The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) says the Wolf Creek nuclear plant operated safely last year.
But the only nuclear power plant in Kansas remains under heightened scrutiny because of a series of problems. Wolf Creek was shut down for more than two months in 2012 after a transformer failed.
The NRC says that was because the plant didn’t properly supervise contractors working on the equipment.
At a public meeting hosted by the NRC on Thursday, Wolf Creek President and CEO Matt Sunseri outlined steps the plant has taken to improve safety and reliability.
