Alstom to absorb US bribery fine despite selling off power business to GE

Engineering group Alstom unsettled investors over the weekend by saying it will not be able to transfer to General Electric a looming US fine over bribery allegations.

The French firm is selling most of its power businesses to the US industrial conglomerate for 12.35 billion euros ($15.15 billion) and transferring their liabilities as part of the package.

Alstom gets shareholders’ nod for sale of energy assets to GE

Global energy businesses represent around 70 per cent of the Alstom's total revenue.

French power equipment maker Alstom has obtained its shareholders' approval for the €12.4-billion ($15.4 billion now) sale of its global energy businesses to the US-headquartered conglomerate General Electric, as per a stock market disclosure.

“The board had taken note of a limited number of recent positive and negative adjustments regarding the terms of the transaction. The combination of these adjustments should not have a material impact on the transaction,” Patrick Kron, chairman and CEO, Alstom, said.

The transaction is subject to the authorisations required from a regulatory and merger control standpoint in a number of jurisdictions. Subject to that condition, the deal is expected to close in the second quarter of 2015, the statement said.

CB&I Chicago Bridge & Iron Draws Two Apparent NRC Violations for Deliberate Misconduct

By Bob Meyer

The NRC notified Mr. Luke Scorsone, EVP, Group President Fabrication Services in Baton Rouge, LA of the conclusion of an Office of Investigation (OI) review of falsification of quality records. Here is the report...

The OI investigation was initiated to determine: (1) whether or not a production manager, rigging manager and a safety representative directed CB&I-LC personnel to falsify statements and, thus, create a false quality record associated with a sub-module destined for the V.C. Summer site, and (2) whether or not CB&I-LC willfully failed to correct a condition adverse to quality by creating an inaccurate condition report. The NRC completed its investigation on May 9, 2014, and a factual summary of the report.

Based on the results of this investigation, two apparent violations of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 52.4, “Deliberate misconduct,” were identified, and are being considered for escalated enforcement action in accordance with the NRC Enforcement Policy.

Farley Unit 2 LER: Manu_al Reactor Trio due to loss of 2B Startup Aux 11 Transformer and Loss of Offsite Power

On 10/14/14 at 0341 COT, Unit 2 reactor was manually tripped after a lightning strike In the High Voltage Switchyard (HVSY) led to a phase 3 to ground fault on a 500kV transmission line resulting In a B train Loss of Site Power (LOSP). The fault caused the 2B Startup Auxiliary Transformer (SAT) instantaneous overcurrent relay to actuate and resulted In deenergizing the 2B SAT. A missing nut in the Power Circuit Breaker (PCB) protection circuitry caused a high resistance on one side of the current transformer circuit resulting In an imbalance In current flows and an actuation In the primary differential instantaneous overcurrent relaying. The B train LOSP in conjunction with the 2B Emergency Diesel Generator (EDG) being out of service for a planned maintenance outage caused a loss of Component Cooling Water (CCW) to the Reactor Coolant Pumps (RCP). The Unit 2 Abnormal Operating Procedures for loss of CCW and loss of A orB Train Electrical Power were entered and the reactor was manually tripped and the RCPs were secured. The reactor trip is reportable per 10 CFR 50.73{a)(2)(iv)(A) for manual actuation of the reactor protection system. Additionally, the reactor trip resulted in a valid actuation of the Auxiliary Feedwater system which is reportable per 10 CFR 50.73(a)(2)(lv)(A).


At 1212 EST on December 12, 2014, D.C. Cook notified the State of Michigan and local authorities of an oil leak from the Unit 2 Main Turbine Lube Oil Cooler to Lake Michigan. Approximately 2000 gallons have leaked into Lake Michigan since October 25, 2014. No visible oil or oil sheen is present on Lake Michigan or the shore line. The leak is currently isolated as of 1030 EST on December 20, 2014.

China's experimental fast neutron reactor has been successfully operated at full capacity for the first time, China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) announced. 

The Chinese Experimental Fast Reactor (CEFR) was brought to full power at 5.00pm on 15 December and operated at this level continuously for three full days, CNNC said yesterday.

Hacker posts more S. Korean reactor info on Internet

SEOUL, Dec. 21 (Yonhap) -- A hacker who obtained blueprints of South Korean nuclear reactors Sunday posted more internal information on the facilities, including the floor maps, on the Internet, threatening further "leaks" unless authorities close down the reactors.

Using an account named "president of anti-nuclear reactor group," the hacker revealed on Twitter the designs and manuals of Gori-2 and Wolsong-1 nuclear reactors taken from the state-run Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co. (KHNP). The information included details on the facilities' air condition and cooling systems.

The hacker signed the posting as president of the anti-nuclear group in Hawaii.

have a black MC cl??s and have experienced no problems with chipping, etc - but I don't use it on a daily basis. I would think that for a daily wallet that's going to get a lot of use, one of the other canvases might be a better choice in the long run. I don't think Vernis would be affected by use in a warm climate, though - as someone else said, when they say it shouldn't be left in the heat they mean i louis vuitton purse
