Oyster Creek Generating Station Offline

 

FORKED RIVER, NJ – Oyster Creek Generating Station operators shut down the unit at 10:15 a.m. to address an equipment issue on the non-nuclear side of the plant. Operators and technicians will test and restore the system prior to returning the unit to service. 

The nuclear energy plant responded as expected, safely and without incident. The Oyster Creek shutdown will have no impact on electrical service to customers.

Oyster Creek is located 60 miles east of Philadelphia in Ocean County, New Jersey. The plant produces 636 net megawatts of electricity at full power, enough electricity to supply 600,000 typical homes, the equivalent to all homes in Monmouth and Ocean counties combined. In addition, plant workers, through their payrolls, are responsible for more than $96 million injected directly into New Jersey’s economy.
