Entergy, Nebraska Public Power District Extend Nuclear Services Agreement

29 January 2010 -- Entergy Nuclear (ETR) signed an agreement with Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) to extend management support services to Cooper Nuclear Station until January 2029. The original contract between the companies, signed in 2003, was for the remaining years of the plant's original operating license, currently due to expire in 2014 and presently under review by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for a 20-year license extension.

Ron Asche, NPPD CEO, attributes the decision to what he calls "significant improvements in regulatory and operational performance"

Cooper is an 810-MW boiling water reactor (BWR) near Brownville, Neb.
