TURKEY POINT RECEIVES BEST-EVER NRC 'REPORT CARD'
MIAMI, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The Nuclear Regulatory Commission today released the results of its most recent Systematic Assessment of Licensee Performance for Florida Power & Light Company's Turkey Point Nuclear Power Station. The assessment, known as SALP, is an NRC "report card" of a plant's performance and Turkey Point received its best score since the NRC began SALP ratings in 1981. Turkey Point received five "outstanding" grades and two "good" grades (each "good" grade noted an improving trend). Each nuclear station is graded in seven basic areas with a grade of 1, representing "outstanding" performance; a 2, constituting "good" performance; and 3, denoting "average" performance. The rating period started Sept. 29, 1991 and ended Jan. 30, 1993. The areas graded include several safety- related assessments, plant operation, maintenance and security. "This improved level of performance can only be achieved by teamwork at all levels and a dedication to excellence by those associated with the facility," said Stewart D. Ebneter, NRC regional administrator. "It is indicative of a proactive senior management setting high standards of safety performance and providing the resources necessary to achieve those standards." Ebneter made special note of Turkey Point's performance during Hurricane Andrew. "The performance of the plant staff and equipment prior to, and following Hurricane Andrew was especially noteworthy. The level of performance in all functional areas was challenged by Hurricane Andrew and the station performance -- staff and equipment -- was truly exceptional," he wrote. -0- 4/7/93 /CONTACT: Ray Golden of Florida Power & Light Company Corporate Communications Department, 305-552-3894 or 305-552-3895/ (FPL)
