Nine Mile Point outage complete

Constellation Energy Nuclear Group LLC (CENG) said Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station Unit 1 in New York returned to 100 percent power following the completion of a planned refueling and maintenance outage.

The refueling outage began March 21 and was safely completed on April 19. Nine Mile Point's Unit 2 continues to operate at full power. Combined, the two boiling water reactors can produce a total of more than 1,750 MW at full power.

During the outage, workers performed more than a thousand safety inspections and maintenance activities on a variety of plant components and systems. Many of the activities performed during the outage cannot be accomplished while the unit is operational, and all are designed to ensure the continued safe, efficient and reliable production of electricity.

Nine Mile Point's two units are on a 24-month refueling cycle.
