Susquehanna Unit 1 back in operations

The 1,149 MW Unit 1 at PPL's Susquehanna nuclear plant in Pennsylvania resumed generating electricity June 24 after damaged turbine blades were replaced.

The blade damage was found in May during an inspection conducted after similar damage was found on the 1,140 MW Unit 2 turbine. Both are GE Type 4 boiling water reactors.

Unit 2 remains shut down as plant workers complete a planned refueling and maintenance outage, and the replacement of damaged turbine blades that were discovered during a routine inspection in April.
