By Editors of Power Engineering

Operators at Exelon’s Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in Pennsylvania today removed Unit 2 from service to begin a planned refueling outage.

While the plant is offline, technicians will replace nearly one-third of the reactor’s fuel and perform more than 13,000 inspections, tests, modifications, and maintenance activities, many of which cannot be performed while the unit is functioning. 

The outage will bring about 1,700 additional workers to the plant for several weeks.
