Susquehanna nuclear Unit 1 offline for refueling outage

Unit 1 at PPL’s (NYSE: PPL) Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania was taken offline for a scheduled refueling and maintenance outage.

Workers will replace about 40 percent of the uranium fuel and complete a number of equipment maintenance tasks and upgrades while the reactor is shut down. The plant will also invest in upgrades and perform routine maintenance tasks. Each of the two units is taken out of service for refueling and maintenance every 24 months.

Unit 2 continues to operate at full power.
