Catch 22
Public utilities, especially those owning nuclear reactors, are highly regulated.  That, along with rigorous safety protocols, inhibits rapid change.  Over the long term, this results in legacy systems and software throughout the organization.  "Don't touch it!  You might break something.", is the safe decision (or perceived as such).  Any serious threat actor, especially a nation state type, is collecting information that will only be used when the doo-doo hits the fan one day.  There's a sweet spot somewhere in Agile land where innovation meets tried and true fundamentals.  These are not mutually exclusive.
