Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hartsville Nuclear Plant was a canceled nuclear power plant located near Hartsville, Tennessee. To be built and operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority, it was to have four boiling water reactors.

Land along the Cumberland River was acquired by TVA in the late 1960s for construction of the plant which was to accommodate the electricity demand for the 1980s. Construction began in 1975. Because the demand for electricity was a lot lower than what was expected, construction halted. The Plant B reactors were canceled on March 22, 1983 and the Plant A reactors were canceled on August 29, 1984.[1]

There are currently plans to turn 550 acres (220 ha) of the 1,940-acre (790 ha) property into an industrial park[1] similar to what became of the Satsop Nuclear Plant in Washington.
