Hope Creek Generating Station exposed power plant workers to asbestos cancer risk
You may be visiting our website because you worked at Hope Creek Generating Station and are concerned about asbestos-related health problems you may have sustained from employment there.
Hope Creek, which is located in New Jersey, is just one of four nuclear power plants in NJ.
Built in 1974, did not begin running as an electricity supplier until 1986.
Hope Creek Generating Station features a nuclear reactor that boils water using nuclear power. The steam it generates is then transformed into electrical power.
Asbestos exposure at the powerhouse
Like many powerhouse plants, Hope Creek Generating Station used asbestos to insulate the equipment in its facilities.
Asbestos is fire- and temperature-resistant, making it ideal as an insulator for pipes and boilers.
Tragically, asbestos is a cancer-causing agent that decades later led to the development of lung cancer, mesothelioma cancer, and asbestosis--a serious respiratory ailment--in workers exposed to it.
It is crucial, therefore, for those who worked at Hope Creek and other such powerhouses to discuss asbestos exposure with a physician.
