Braidwood station completes outage

BRACEVILLE – Operators returned Braidwood Generating Station Unit 2 to full power Tuesday, marking the end of the unit’s scheduled refueling outage that began May 3.

More than 2,000 Exelon employees and contractors performed more than 10,000 carefully choreographed activities during the outage, according to a news release.

These activities included numerous safety inspections and equipment tests, along with plant refurbishments and improvements.

“The work performed during the refueling outage will ensure our ability to provide safe, clean and reliable electricity during the hot summer months and beyond,” Braidwood Site Vice President Mark Kanavos said in the release.

Braidwood Station Unit 1 continued to operate at full power during the Unit 2 outage.
