PPL restarts Susquehanna nuclear Unit 2 after repairs

PPL Susquehanna nuclear power plant Pennsylvania shut down

Unit 2 at PPL’s (NYSE: PPL) Susquehanna nuclear plant went back online Thursday following repairs of hydraulic valves that allow steam to bypass the turbine during startup.

When oil leaks in the valves were discovered during routine inspections on Nov. 20, the unit was safely shutdown for repairs. Unit 1 has continued operating without incident at full power.
