[cdn-nucl-l] Pickering Not There
The story says that two units at Pickering are not running so their
backup systems can be maintained.
Does this make sense? If you operate without a backup that means that
at least you are operating. Shutting down when the backup is not there
makes the backup a liability, not a reliability guarantee. If the story
is right, then the approach being followed at Pickering does not seem
very practical to me. What is even worse, this approach is being used
on two reactors concurrently. If they were both running without a
backup and one failed at least we would have one still running. As it
is we have none.
