Calvert Cliffs Refueling Outage Powers Local EconomyCalvert Cliffs Refueling Outage Powers Local Economy<div>​​LUSBY, Md. – Operators at Exelon Generation’s Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant removed Unit 2 from service just after midnight on Sunday to begin a planned refueling outage. The refueling outage will help ensure the unit runs safely and provides consistent, reliable power to the region for another two-year cycle. </div><div><br></div><div>While the unit is offline, technicians will replace nearly one-third of the reactor’s fuel and perform more than 10,000 inspections, tests, maintenance activities and modifications. Many of the tasks performed during the outage cannot be accomplished while the unit is online. </div><div><br></div><div>Additionally, this year, Calvert will be replacing a high pressure turbine on the non-nuclear side of the plant. This investment in state-of-the-art equipment is expected to result in an additional 19 megawatts of generation.</div><div><br></div><div>“We are proud to have the opportunity to operate our nuclear power plant here in Calvert County. We want to continue meeting the region’s energy needs when they need us most: during the freezing temperatures of winter or the extreme heat of summer,” said Calvert Cliffs Site Vice President George Gellrich. “By investing in equipment and performing the right maintenance during the outage, we ensure safe, reliable operations for years to come.”  </div><div><br></div><div>To support the refueling outage, approximately 2,000 additional workers will travel to Calvert for several weeks, filling nearby hotels to capacity and increasing foot traffic in restaurants and shops.</div><div><br></div><div>“The annual refueling outage at Exelon Generation’s Calvert Cliffs station has been a positive economic boost for the businesses in Calvert County for many years,” said President/CEO of the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce Bill Chambers. “This year will be no exception. The Calvert Chamber continues to field numerous inquiries from outage personnel coming into the County for housing, dining and amenity options. The outage is just another example of Exelon Generation contributing so much to the vitality of the Calvert business community.” </div><div><br></div><div>Calvert Cliffs is located on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County and is Maryland’s only nuclear energy facility. The station is home to two pressurized water reactors capable of generating 1,756 megawatts combined, enough to power more approximately 30 percent of all homes and businesses in the state of Maryland.

LaSalle Refueling Outage Powers Local EconomyLaSalle Refueling Outage Powers Local Economy<div><strong>MARSEILLES, Ill. (Feb. 6, 2017)</strong> – While operators were powering down LaSalle’s Unit 2 reactor late Sunday night, they were also powering up an economic engine that will bring more than 2,000 jobs and millions of dollars in procurement and retail opportunities for local businesses.</div><div><br></div><div>As LaSalle Station begins its annual refueling and maintenance outage, more than 2,000 highly skilled workers, many from local union halls, will converge on LaSalle County, filling nearby hotels to capacity and increasing foot traffic in restaurants and shops. By the end of spring, more than 7,000 outage jobs will have been created at Exelon’s Illinois nuclear facilities, providing good wages and bolstering local businesses during a typically slower period.</div><div><br></div><div>“When supplemental workers come to Exelon’s LaSalle Station for the refueling outage it means additional business for our community,” said Assistant Executive Director of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce Meg Skelly. “Starved Rock Country and the Ottawa Area businesses welcome the additional workers, who take advantage of all the services we have to offer, whether it’s our restaurants, hotels or shopping.”</div><div><br></div><div>Refueling outages allow workers to perform detailed inspections, equipment upgrades and maintenance work on the plant that cannot be completed while the reactor is operating. Workers at LaSalle will replace about one-third of the fuel in the Unit 2 reactor and will perform more than 15,000 inspections, maintenance activities and other tasks. </div><div><br></div><div>“Winter is not usually a time for large job growth in the trades, so seeing thousands of jobs available now is a boon to workers across the region,” said Dean Apple, President IBEW Local 15. “Filling thousands of good-paying positions over the coming months will be a tough but rewarding undertaking.”  </div><div><br></div><div>The work is designed to enhance the unit’s ability to provide the region with safe and reliable carbon-free electricity. LaSalle Unit 1 will continue to generate electricity during the Unit 2 refueling outage.</div><div><br></div><div>“The safe and reliable operation of LaSalle Generating Station is always our top priority,” said LaSalle Site Vice President Bill Trafton. “The highly-skilled professionals joining us for the refueling outage share our commitment to safe operations and will help us continue providing the region with clean energy for years to come.” </div><div><br></div><div>At full power the facility’s two generating units produce more than 2,300 megawatts of electricity, enough to power more than two million typical American homes. Approximately 90 percent of the carbon-free power in Illinois is produced by Exelon’s six nuclear facilities in the state. LaSalle Station is about 75 miles southwest of Chicago near Marseilles, Ill.</div><div><br></div>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/lasalle-refueling-outage-powers-local-economy2/6/2017 11:00:00 PM
Quad Cities Operators Extinguish Small Flame on Indicator Light Bulb SocketQuad Cities Operators Extinguish Small Flame on Indicator Light Bulb Socket<div><strong>​CORDOVA, Ill.</strong> — Quad Cities operators identified and quickly extinguished a small flame coming from a control panel indicator light Wednesday evening. The candle-sized flame was extinguished within minutes and it did not present a risk to plant operations or public safety. Technicians will inspect and replace the light bulb and socket before returning the indicator light to service.</div><div><br></div><div>Because the brief flame was reported in a vital area of the plant, operators were required to declare an “Alert” in accordance with very stringent Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) policies. An Alert is the second lowest of four emergency classifications established by the NRC. It was declared at 7:38 p.m. and terminated at 11:36 p.m.</div><div><br></div><div>Quad Cities Generating Station is located approximately three miles north of Cordova, Ill. on Illinois Route 84 in Rock Island County. The station’s two reactors can produce more than 1,900 megawatts of carbon-free electricity – enough to power more than a million homes and businesses. </div><div><br></div>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/quad-cities-operators-extinguish-small-flame-on-indicator-light-bulb-socket2/2/2017 7:00:00 AM
