LaSalle Station Unit 1 Operating At Full Power

 

Operators recently returned LaSalle County Generating Station Unit 1 to service following a scheduled refueling outage. The unit was reconnected to the power grid on March 14 and subsequently reached full power.

During the outage, workers performed more than 14,000 detailed inspections, maintenance activities and equipment upgrades. By replacing and updating equipment on an ongoing basis, it ensures the plant can provide reliable, carbon-free electricity for years to come. This refueling outage also introduced Digital Plant Viewer, a new tool designed to improve planning and in-field execution, resulting in greater efficiency and accuracy.

"Refueling outages are critical in assuring plant safety and long-term equipment reliability," said LaSalle Generating Station Site Vice President Bill Trafton. "We embrace using new and innovative technology like Digital Plant Viewer to continue providing energy that keeps homes warm in the cold winter months and cool during the summer."

LaSalle Generating Station is located about 75 miles southwest of Chicago near Marseilles, IL. At full power, the facility's two generating units produce more than 2,300 megawatts, enough electricity for 2.3 million typical homes.
