Pottstown, PA - Operators at Limerick Generating Station returned Unit 1 to full power at approximately 11:40 p.m. yesterday. The unit was taken off-line on September 1 for planned inspections of the low-pressure turbine blades. All inspections were completed satisfactorily.
"Plant personnel executed the planned outage safely and effectively," said Tom Dougherty, Limerick Site Vice President. "These inspections are part of our commitment to operate Limerick at the highest level of safety and efficiency."
Limerick Generating Station is 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. With both units at full power, the site produces enough carbon-free electricity for approximately two million homes.
