A judge awarded about $235.4 million in damages Thursday from the federal government to three Yankee power providers in New England, the companies said. The award by the US Court of Federal Claims was granted to the Yankee Atomic Electric Co., based in Rowe; the Connecticut Yankee Atomic Power Co., and the Maine Yankee Atomic Power Co., according to the companies. The award was for “costs related to the government’s failure to honor its contract obligations to begin removing spent nuclear fuel” and other waste from the three sites by January 1998, the companies said.
