Nuclear power plant owners seek damages
July 18, 2013
In June, Southern California Edison retired San Onofre’s Unit 2 and Unit 3 reactors and laid off approximately 1,000 employees after it was determined that Mitsubishi Heavy Industries had supplied the plant with defective equipment that caused issues to pervasive to fix.
Southern California Edison determined the cost of shuttering the plant at $2.1 billion.
Frank Gillespie, a Mitsubishi senior vice president, said in an interview last week that he believes Mitsubishi’s liability is limited to the $137 million value of equipment his company supplied to San Onofre.
