PORT GIBSON — Officials with Jackson-based Entergy Nuclear say that a top safety rating from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission reflects Grand Gulf Nuclear Station’s 24-year history of safe operation.

In an annual assessment, the nuclear site in Port Gibson received overall top safety ratings from the commission for its performance during 2008, according to Entergy Nuclear.

“Grand Gulf has been and will continue to be safe and operate in the best interest of the public,” said Randy Douet, vice president of operations for Grand Gulf. “We are pleased that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s report confirms our commitment to a strong safety culture, and we also recognize that safe operation requires constant vigilance and self-critical attitudes.”

Following a color-coded rating system, the commission assessed plant performance at quarterly intervals and rated Grand Gulf’s overall performance “green,” which reflects the highest level of safety.
