Nuclear power plant back to full power after maintenance outage

Operators at Exelon’s two-unit, 1,751 MW Dresden Generating Station, about 60 miles southwest of Chicago, returned Unit 2 to full power Sept. 7 following the completion of maintenance on the unit’s condenser.

Exelon said station personnel worked on water tubes located inside the condenser and performed other maintenance activities that could not be done while the unit was operating.

Unit 2 was taken offline on Thursday, Aug. 30. It was placed back in service on Wednesday, Sept. 5.
