TMI Offline for Scheduled Refuleing Outage

TMI Offline for Refueling Outage

​More than 1,700 highly trained technical workers are in the area to support the Three Mile Island Generating Station’s refueling outage that began shortly after midnight last night.  Scheduled outages allow workers to perform detailed inspections, equipment upgrades and maintenance work that cannot be completed when the plant is operating. 

“We see a significant positive impact on our business from Three Mile Island’s refueling outages,” said Steve Tremmel, General Manager, Wyndham Gardens Hotel Harrisburg/Hershey.  “Our bookings go way up and I am sure other local restaurants and hotels see increased business as well.” 
Every two years, TMI performs an outage to refuel the reactor and perform maintenance and modification work that will continue to modernize the station’s systems and components. This year, in addition to replacing one-third of the reactor’s fuel, workers will install new digital equipment and overhaul the turbines that produce electricity. 

“The safe and reliable operation of Three Mile Island Generating Station is always our top priority,” said Rick Libra, TMI’s Site Vice President. “Refueling outages are critical to assuring plant safety and long-term equipment reliability.”

Three Mile Island Generating Station is located approximately 12 miles south of Harrisburg.  The plant can produce enough carbon-free electricity for 800,000 homes.
