Shaw’s statement on nuclear plant situation in Japan

BATON ROUGE, US: The Shaw Group Inc issued a statement regarding the recent events in Japan. J M Bernhard Jr, Chairman, Shaw expressed his sympathy and concern as Japan faces a painful and challenging time.


Bernhard said, “To aid in the humanitarian efforts, Shaw has made a significant contribution to the American Red Cross, and I personally have directed all of our employees, including our team of nuclear experts, to stand ready to provide any assistance and support that we can to the government and people of Japan in responding to this terrible event. While it is premature to speculate on any impact the events in Japan may have on the US nuclear industry, we continue to believe in the importance of nuclear energy and the role it will play in the future of our country, as well as the rest of the world. The new generation technology under construction today has been designed with greater safety systems in place that will even more effectively address the challenges we are seeing in Japan. The industry consistently incorporates operating experience and lessons learned and will continue to use those insights to make nuclear energy even safer.”


“At this time, we do not believe there will be an impact on Shaw’s nuclear projects currently under construction in the US and China. Our customers have indicated they intend to move forward and we believe the construction timelines will continue as planned,” said Bernhard.
