Hallam Nuclear Generating Station

The Hallam Nuclear Generating Station in Nebraska was the site of an experimental graphite-moderated sodium cooled reactor built by Atomics International. It was located near Hallam, about 25 miles southwest of Lincoln.
The graphite moderator was clad in stainless steel. There were issues with the cladding, as corrosion and stress cracking led to the failure of the cladding cans. Because the cost of correcting the failure would have outweighed the benefits, the plant was instead decommissioned and the nuclear components sealed in concrete.
- Present day
Currently the site holds a fossil-fuel plant, Sheldon Power Station.
