CLINTON, Ill. - Clinton Power Station returned to full power Tuesday evening, following repairs to the hydraulic control system that regulates speed on the main turbine.
Operators took the unit offline on Friday, April 26, after they observed low hydraulic pressure on the control system that regulates main turbine speed. Both the turbine and main generator are on the non-nuclear side of the plant.
Clinton Power Station is located approximately six miles east of Clinton. The plant produces 1,078 megawatts, enough electricity for about one million homes.
