Seminar: "Making U.S. Nuclear Plants Safer by Incorporating Lessons Learned from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident"


Please join Mark W. Lloyd, Director – Projects, American Electric Power Nuclear Generation, on Thursday, October 29th, at 4:00 p.m. in 141 DeBartolo Hall.

The earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11, 2011 and subsequent nuclear accident at Fukushima have resulted in worldwide attention toward nuclear energy safety. The leadership of the U.S. commercial nuclear industry is dedicated to gaining a deep understanding of the events and to taking the necessary actions to improve safety and emergency preparedness at America’s nuclear facilities. Mr. Lloyd’s presentation will detail the many things done to make the Cook Nuclear Plant in Bridgman, Michigan, and all U.S. nuclear plants, safer.
