US utility FirstEnergy and EnergySolutions on 15 October signed an agreement whereby all licences and assets of unit 2 of the Three Mile Island NPP in Pennsylvania will be transferred to a subsidiary of EnergySolutions. The reactor, which suffered a partial meltdown in 1979 and was never restarted, will then be decommissioned. The contract was signed between EnergySolutions and FirstEnergy subsidiaries GPU Nuclear Inc, Metropolitan Edison Company, Jersey Central Power & Light Company, and Pennsylvania Electric Company. EnergySolutions subsidiary TMI-2 Solutions will take over the plant, property, nuclear decommissioning trust fund, plant licences and responsibility for decommissioning Three Mile Island 2 (TMI-2). The agreement also facilitates applications to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities for approval of the transfer, followed by decommissioning of TMI-2. The transaction is expected to close during the second half of 2020 once the required approvals are in place.
