Braidwood Station completes Unit 2 refueling outage

BRACEVILLE, Ill. — Operators returned Braidwood Generating Station Unit 2 to full power last night following the completion of the unit’s 16th refueling outage on Thursday, Nov. 8.

During the 24-day outage, Exelon employees and supplemental workers performed more than 13,000 activities, including equipment upgrades, safety inspections, tests and plant improvements. The unit began its scheduled refueling outage Monday, Oct. 15.

“The replacement of the main power transformers and the other work completed during the outage will help ensure safe, reliable and efficient operation of Unit 2,” said Braidwood Site Vice President Dan Enright.

Braidwood Unit 1 continued to operate during the Unit 1 refueling outage. The station is approximately 60 miles southwest of Chicago.
