Nuclear Companies REstructure to Protect Profitable Business Segments and Isolate Them From Dying Nuclear Segments

stock here: this was very predictable and was in fact predicted.    You will see more and more of this.   And you can expect the captured "regulatory" agencies of NRC and DOE to give approvals when necessary.

The Nuke segments will hold the money losing assets, and the responsibility for "decommissioning" and of course those costs, will ultimately be born by the taxpayers.     The corporations are already looting the decommissioning funds even though those funds are only 25% of what is needed to get the task done.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The 148-year-old Babcock & Wilcox Co., headquartered in Barberton from 1906 to 1978, and still employing about 2,000 here, has split into two independent companies.
No layoffs are planned, and B&W shareholders now own shares in both companies.
One company, now named Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. will continue to call itself Babcock & Wilcox and focus on B&W's traditional business constructing steam boilers fired by coal, gas and renewable fuels, including waste materials, and developing emission technologies for these power plants and other industries.
The other company will carry on with B&W's nuclear business, building, servicing and refueling reactors for the Navy, as well equipment and parts for commercial nuclear power plants. This company is now called BWX Technologies, Inc. and is headquartered in Lynchburg, Va.

    1. You need to calibrate your counts to a source standard. Else counts alone dont mean squat.

    2. That sounds horrible, any update?

    3. Don't listen to the turd, an increase from 16 CPM to 620 CPM does mean squat. Agreed that having a standard source would be nice, you could check the efficiency of your geiger, but certainly not necessary when comparing average background to peaks.

  3. At least in greece they are non nuclear. Greece is one of the sunniest places in Europe with the potential for the most solar power, geothermal power, wave power in the world. The imf finances nuclear power so does the eu . greece will be lucky to get out of eu and away from imf.
    The united state floats on a layer of radioactive ooze. Hundred of opena air tests, underground nukes in 10 states to release natural gas in 60s 70s, Uraniumines tailings. plutonium plants everywhere. 1 trillion gallon of nuclear waste pumped into ground all over us in 60s 70s 80s, radioactive fracking waste, bad mediacl waste of cobalt 60 etc in every city, bad fuk fallout,100 aging reactors some coming close to disaster every week dumping tritium into rivers lakes and ocean each with npp w cooling pools for hi level used nuclear reactor waste 1000s of tons enough to blow up solar system. then all the hi level fallout from japan. santa susana, tmi, idaho meltdown and other covered up nuc accidents. all the bombs. nuclear shis sunk off coast. millions of barrels of nuc waste dumped into sf bay pacific and atlantic. fire in st louis dump by nuclear waste dump. The united states has this plus real economic hell from unemployment homelesness 2.5 million in prisons private prisons as slave labor. Greece is non-nucpear not contaminated. could get away from the wolves and start a renewable renaissance and sell energy to the wolves. thankyou so much
