Dallas, March 2, 2010 – For the first time in company history, Luminant’s power plant fleet and supporting services have achieved 10 million safe work hours without a lost-time injury.
The new record equals 26 months without a lost-time injury, defined as any on-the-job injury requiring a full day or more away from work.
Roughly 2,200 employees at each of Luminant’s 16 power plants, as well as departments including engineering and operational support, generation planning, environmental and administrative services contributed to the achievement.
Luminant has 17,500 MW of generation in Texas, including 2,300 MW fueled by nuclear power and 7,200 MW fueled by coal. An additional 800 MW of coal-fueled generation capacity is under construction and expected to begin commercial operation in 2010.
