Holtec and SNC-Lavalin’s new Comprehensive Decommissioning International (CDI) group forecasts significant economies of scale following Holtec’s purchase of three closing U.S. reactors, Mark Morant, CEO of CDI, said.

Holtec has signed agreements to purchase upon closure Entergy’s 688 MW Pilgrim plant in Massachusetts, its 811 MW Palisades plant in Michigan, and Exelon’s 636 MW Oyster Creek plant in New Jersey.
