Limerick Generating Station Unit 2 Offline for Planned Maintenance 

 During the Unit 2 outage, plant personnel will repair a turbine control valve before returning the unit to service.   

 

POTTSTOWN, PA - Operators at Exelon’s Limerick Nuclear Generating Station removed Unit 2 from service today at approximately 2:00 p.m. to perform scheduled maintenance.

During the Unit 2 outage, plant personnel will repair a turbine control valve before returning the unit to service. 

"These additional maintenance activities and inspections will help get us ready for the peak summer season ahead,” said Russ Kearney, Limerick Site Vice President.  “We are working hard now to make sure we can run at full power all summer long, when our customers need us most.” 

The repairs can only be performed while the plant is offline. Limerick Unit 1 will continue to operate at full power during the outage. Limerick Generating Station is located approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia.  With both units at full power, the site can produce enough carbon-free electricity for 2 million homes.
