Exelon : CALVERT CLIFFS UNIT 2 OFFLINE FOR SCHEDULED REFUELING
LUSBY, MD – Operators removed Calvert Cliffs Unit 2 from service early this morning for a planned refueling outage. While the unit is offline, technicians will replace nearly one-third of the reactor’s fuel and perform thousands of tests and preventive maintenance activities to keep the unit running safely and effectively for another two years. Most of this work cannot be performed while the unit is online.
“This year’s refueling outage represents Exelon’s continued investment in the future of safe and reliable operations at Calvert Cliffs,” said Site Vice President George Gellrich. “In addition to the thousands of safety inspections and preventative maintenance tasks underway this year, we are upgrading a host of key components that will help the station run more efficiently and effectively for many years to come.”
