 Hatch nuclear Unit 2 back online after scheduled outage

Plant Hatch nuclear Unit 2 began operations after completion of a scheduled refueling and maintenance outage.
 
The unit was taken offline Feb. 9 and resumed generating electricity on March 14. As the unit returns to full power, workers with Southern Nuclear (NYSE: SO) twill perform a sequence of fuel rod pattern adjustments, which are required in boiling water reactors following deep down powers and outages. Workers also made upgrades to plant systems and components.
 
Approximately 1,500 additional workers from General Electric (NYSE: GE), Williams, Westinghouse and Areva were on site. Hatch 1 continued to generate electricity throughout the outage.
