Dungeness B nuclear reactor online after planned outage

The Dungeness B nuclear Unit 22 is back online following a 16-week planned maintenance outage.
Work included removing and inspecting the turbines, inspecting graphite within the core of the reactor and maintaining equipment that is usually used all day. Two unit transformers were replaced as part of the 10-year life extension that will allow Dungeness B to operate until 2028.
Each of the two units at Dungeness B is shut down every three years for a statutory outage. EDF Energy has spent more than £30 million ($457 million) on the maintenance program.
