Have some friends in Huntsville who recently told me about Browns Ferry expanding.  Does anyone know any details and is Bartlett handling the staffing for most Ferry jobs?

I am at Browns Ferry, and the only expansion I have seen is due to the excellent BBQ in the area!
Actually, there is a long-term project to restart Unit 1. All TVA nuclear units were shutdown in 1985, and it took about 10 years to get the rest of them back on line. BFN Unit 1 was determined to require the most work, so it was scheduled to be restarted last. The demand for power is finally high enough to require restart of this last unit.

SWCC has the contract for the crafts, and Bartlett has the contract for RP's. If you want to work as an RP for Unit 1 restart, come in for the Unit 2 Refueling outage and make a good impression. I hear there are still slots available for the Unit 2 outage!

Per Diem has now been approved for the Ferry outage as well as the Sequoyah outage effective 3/14.  SR Level I is $21/hr $80/day PD; SR Level II is $22/hr and $80/day PD; and SR Level II is $23/hr and $80/day PD.    ;D  You must live >60 miles from the plant and work <60 days to qualify for this PD.

Roxanna,

Bartlett is placing Rad Engineers there as well, do you know if they are now afforded the option of Per Diem as well?

The Rad Engineer is considered the same as Radcon Specialist.  Rate for Specialist I is $26.50/hr and $80/day PD; Specialist II is $29.50/hr and $80/day PD.    Same restrictions apply to qualify for PD.

So who gave the outage the slogan, "Quality Work's Last!"?
Wait, it's "Quality Work Lasts!"
I feel so much better knowing there will be a breaker to breaker run after this outage.

Update:  Hungry Fisherman is closed and is now another Mexican place.  Copeland's in Huntsville has also closed under strange circumstances - they say Katrina impacted their seafood chain but the sheriff locked the place for non payment of taxes.

<g>  No, Copeland's was not owned by Mitch.  Mitch is in the car business - he owned a dealership over in Corinth, MS, but he sold it and moved back here to work for a BIG Chevy dealer in Huntsville.

Any info on this?  I heard there were serious injuries when a TCM
fell on some tech's. 
I remember seeing the results of one being "dropped" at DCC, not pretty.

A SAM was being moved and something went terribly wrong.  Two workers were injured.  One is still in serious condition.  They aren't RP techs - they work for LE Myers.  Investigation is still ongoing.  It was bad.

The two workers were lowering a sam-9 down a ramp using a rope slipped through a hand rail. The rope broke sending the Sam toward two workers, breaking one persons leg and landing on the second, severely injuring him. both workers were heliported to the hospital. Last word I got this morning is that he was taken off life support; don’t know if that’s good or bad.

I spoke to a friend of mine who was there. He said it was very BAD! He is a EMT that responded to the accident, it was one of the worst things he seen. But everyone that responded gave him a chance. He said 5 or 6 carpenters used 4X4's and pryed that thing off the guy in about a minute. Then the EMTs snatched the guy up and began to work him. He said in about 2 minutes they had the guy on the ambulance going to the hospital.

 It was a sad event- everyone involved gave it thier all. I am very sorry this happened, but I am proud how all the craft worked together to save this guy.
It has taught me to apprieciate every moment because it can be taken away from you in a second.

Just finished an outage there. A great group of people. The house techs aren't your regular techs. They get out in the field and really know what they are doing. Tough outage but everyone comes together to get it done.

Dirty plant but someone said " We are aggressively deconning the plant- one shower at a time ".
