Pennsylvania nuclear power plant rebuilds turbine, returns to service

Susquehanna Steam Electric Station’s Unit No. 1 returned to service generating electric power June 14 following modification to its turbine.

The nuclear power plant’s service-related outage was the first segment of a long-term plan to address turbine blade issues. Work on the Unit 1 turbine started May 9, according to Power Engineering.

The Susquehanna plant is located in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, near Berwick. It uses a pair of General Electric (GE) boiling water reactors. PPL Corp. serves as plant operator. Susquehanna produces 63 million kilowatt hours per day.
