Peach Bottom Unit 2 Offline For Maintenance

Subhead

DELTA, PA (Dec. 14, 2015) — Operators at Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station removed Unit 2 from service early this morning to inspect and repair a steam valve. Due to the location of the valve, repairs cannot be performed while the unit is online.

Once the repairs are made and final testing is complete, Unit 2 will be returned to service. Peach Bottom Unit 3 continues to operate at full power.

Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station is located on the west bank of the Conowingo Pond (Susquehanna River) in York County, Pa. The station is home to two boiling water reactors capable of generating 2,700 megawatts combined. Both reactors began commercial operation in 1974.​
