Shoreham
Location: NY
Operator: Long Island Lighting Co
Configuration: 1 X 820 MW BWR
Completed: 1984
Reactor supplier: GE
T/G supplier: GE
EPC: Stone & Webster
Quick Facts: Shoreham was announced in Apr 1965 and planned as a single 540-MW unit to cost $65-75mn and be online in 1973. In 1968, the unit was enlarged to 820 MW and the price tag raised to $217mn. In fact, construction did not get underway until 1973 and this was followed by years of anti-plant protests culminating ina demonstration of some 15,000 in June 1979. The plant price tag rose steadily during construction, particularly after the TMI accident, and topped out at about $6bn. The project was completed in 1984 when Shoreham attained criticality, but the unit never went into commercial operation. In Jun 1989, LILCO approved abandomnet of Shoreham and the plant was sodl to Long Island Power Authority for $1. A surcharge of 3% was attached to Long Island ELectric bills for 30yrs to pay off construction. It cost $189mn to decommission the NPP, although mosthe electrical infrqstructure remained in place and in use. The site has been used for several gas turbines.
