TVA begins outage at Browns Ferry nuclear power unit

The Tennessee Valley Authority began a scheduled refueling and maintenance outage at the Browns Ferry nuclear Unit 2 in Alabama.
 
Unit 2 operated continually for more than seven months. An additional 830 TVA and contract employees will supplement regular staff during the outage, which began March 13. Workers will replace fuel and perform maintenance on key equipment and systems.
 
At full capacity, all three reactors generate a combined 3,300-MW of electricity. Units 1 and 3 will continue operations during the outage.
