Application pulled for third nuke plant at Nine Mile Point

UniStar Nuclear Energy has withdrawn its applications to build a third nuclear reactor at Nine Mile Point in Scriba,  according to the Associated Press.

The company submitted an operating license application in September 2008 to build what would have been Nine Mile 3. But just over a year later UniStar submitted a letter requesting the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to temporarily suspend the application review.

The AP reports the company told the NRC it was withdrawing the application because Nine Mile Point 3 was not selected for federal loan guarantees.
