Nuclear energy officials say they would never be so arrogant as to say the Callaway Nuclear facility is impervious to disaster, but they tell the Public Service Commission the plant is above and beyond safety codes.
Adam Heflin is Ameren Missouri’s Senior Vice President and Chief Nuclear Officer. He tells Missourians “worst-case scenarios” were taken into account when the plant was built in the 80s. The plant went online in 1984.
Heflin was joined by Matt Sunseri, Wolf Creek Nuclear Operation Corporation President and CEO, in explaining to commissioners what safety precautions are in place, and said those measures are ongoing, including (but not limited to) continual training, sampling, security and testing at various locations within 2 miles, 5 miles, 10 miles and up to 50 and 100 miles from the Callaway plant site.
