Calvert Cliffs Unit 2 Returns to Full Power

 

LUSBY, MD  — Operators at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant returned Unit 2 to full power today at 5:14 a.m., ending an outage that began on December 1. During the outage, technicians repaired a steam generator feed pump, part of the system that creates steam and turns the plant´s turbines.

While Unit 2 was offline, technicians performed additional maintenance to enhance safety and equipment reliability. Calvert Cliffs Unit 1 continued to operate at full power during the Unit 2 outage.

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 1,768 megawatts combined. Units 1 and 2 began commercial operation in 1975 and 1977, respectively.
