Exelon’s 580-MW Robert Emma Ginna Nuclear Power Plant in Ontario, New York shut down just after midnight on Monday for a planned refueling outage, ending a successful 18-month operating cycle.
During the planned outage, Exelon employees will be joined by more than 700 supplemental workers to complete maintenance tasks, tests, and safety inspections on plant systems.
“The safe, reliable operation of Ginna is always our top priority,” said Site Vice President Joe Pacher. “In addition to replacing nearly one third of the reactor’s fuel, outage specialists will be inspecting, enhancing, and testing plant equipment.
The Ginna plant powers more than 500,000 homes and businesses.
