|The William H. Zimmer Power Station, located near Moscow, Ohio, was originally intended to be a boiling water reactor type of nuclear power plant. Although once estimated to be 97% complete, poor construction and quality assurance (QA) led to the plant being converted to coal-fired generation. Today, the plant is generates 1400 gross MWe and 1300 net MWe. Zimmer Power Station is the largest sin...||03/16/2008||862|
