Mitsubishi books electric generator replacement at Ginna nuclear station

Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas Inc. was awarded a multi-million-dollar contract by Constellation Energy Nuclear Group LLC (CENG) to replace the electric generator at the Ginna Nuclear Power Plant in Ontario, N.Y. in 2014.

The contract is part of a $50 million generator replacement project. Mitsubishi will install a new electrical generator and excitation system including related auxiliaries during a planned refueling and maintenance outage.

Ginna is owned and operated by Baltimore-based CENG, which operates five nuclear reactors at three sites in New York and Maryland. The Ginna station is licensed to operate until 2029.

The generator upgrade project will be led by Mitsubishi's Power Generation Services division in Orlando, Fla.
