Operators Reconnect Unit 2 at PPL Susquehanna After Completing Planned Turbine Inspection



March 18, 2014

Operators at the Susquehanna nuclear power plant reconnected the Unit 2 generator to the regional electric grid Monday (3/17) after completing a planned inspection of its turbines.

Workers proactively replaced several dozen blades to enhance safe and reliable operations until next spring's refueling outage. No cracked blades were found, which is consistent with the data being received from the turbine's extensive monitoring system. Plant engineers will continue to closely monitor blade performance.

Unit 1 continues to operate at full power.

The Susquehanna plant, located in Luzerne County about seven miles north of Berwick, is owned jointly by PPL Susquehanna LLC and Allegheny Electric Cooperative Inc. and is operated by PPL Susquehanna.

PPL Susquehanna LLC is one of PPL Corporation's generating affiliates. PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), with 2013 revenues of $12 billion, is one of the largest companies in the U.S. utility sector. The PPL family of companies delivers electricity and natural gas to about 10 million customers in the United States and the United Kingdom, owns more than 18,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the United States and sells energy in key U.S. markets.
