Exelon’s Oyster Creek nuclear plant resumes full operations

Plant operator Exelon has returned the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant to commercial operations.

Oyster Creek nuclear power station is a single unit boiling water reactor power plant situated on an 800-acre site near the Oyster Creek in the Forked River section of Lacey Township in New Jersey.

The total U.S. output has increased by 0.7 percent to 87,942 MW, according to Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) data compiled by Bloomberg.

Exelon spokeswoman Suzanne D’Ambrosio said the company temporarily shut down the unit to repair a water flow regulator valve.

The units have started operating at 70 percent of its capacity at the time NRC compiled the report.
