Cooling[ edit ] The plant draws cooling water from the Pacific Oceanand during heavy storm surges the units can be throttled back to prevent an excess of kelp from entering the cooling water intake. All thermal power stations in California, including the fossil gas power stations that likewise use the cheaper once-through cooling OTC cycle and produce a similar warming impact upon the surrounding waters, employ various filtering capabilities to prevent larvae and other aquatic objects from being drawn into impacts with the grids on the intake tubes, a process known as entrainment. A principal concern about the plant is whether it can be sufficiently earthquake-proof; the site was deemed safe when construction began inbut a seismic fault the Hosgri fault had been discovered several miles offshore by the time the plant was completed in This fault experienced a 7.
Following the Three Mile Island accident in the United Statesconstruction on the BNPP was stopped, and a subsequent safety inquiry into the plant revealed over 4, defects. Days after the April Chernobyl disaster in what was then the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republicthe succeeding administration of President Corazon Aquino decided not to operate the plant.
While successive governments have looked at several proposals to convert the plant into an oil, coal, or gas-fired power station, these options have all been deemed less economically attractive in the long term than simply constructing new power stations.
