Limerick Unit 2 Offline

Operators removed Limerick Unit 2 from service today at 9:00 a.m. due to an electrical component malfunction that impacted the unit’s recirculating water pumps.

POTTSTOWN, PA (June 1, 2016) — Operators removed Limerick Unit 2 from service today at 9:00 a.m. due to an electrical component malfunction that impacted the unit’s recirculating water pumps. The pumps circulate water in the reactor and are not required for safe shutdown. 

All systems responded as designed and Unit 1 remains at full power. Technicians will repair the component and fully test the system before returning unit 2 to service.

Limerick Generating Station is located in Montgomery County approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The plant produces enough carbon-free electricity to power two million homes. Join us on Twitter and You Tube.
