The current staff of 23 employees (who are contracted through NAES) will be reduced in number until the transition is complete. “We will retain two people on staff after the unit is on cold reserve,” Anderson stated.
At this time the plant is not permanently closing; it could be brought back online if the company decides to do so. It will be maintained on cold reserve for up to three years.
