Pennsylvania Nuclear Reactor Shut Down to Repair Valve

Operators disconnected Unit 1 at PPL Corporation's Susquehanna nuclear power plant in northeastern Pennsylvania from the regional power grid Sunday to repair one of four valves that control the amount of steam going into the turbine.

"Repairing the valve reflects our conservative approach to operating the plant safely and reliably," said Timothy S. Rausch, PPL Susquehanna senior vice president and Chief Nuclear Officer. "The repair also supports optimal performance of the unit during the summer months when the demand for power is high."

PPL operators reconnected the reactor later in the day after repairing the valve. Unit 2 is operating at full power.
