TVA has awarded a contract to GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) to provide outage services for Browns Ferry Nuclear Power Plant units 1, 2 and 3.

The contract, valued at more than $70 million, calls for GEH to provide a full portfolio of outage and inspection services including refuel floor, under-vessel activities and control rod drive mechanism exchange services for the reactors near Decatur, Alabama.

The agreement runs through 2020 and includes a total of nine outages (three at each reactor).

At full capacity, Browns Ferry’s three GE boiling water reactors generate a combined 3,300 megawatts which is 10 percent of TVA’s total generation capacity and enough clean-air electricity to meet the needs of more than 2 million homes.
