Dominion restarts nuclear reactor after refueling

by AP posted Dec 3 2012 5:01PM

     SURRY, Va. (AP) - Dominion Virginia Power is restarting one of the nuclear reactors at its Surry County power station following scheduled refueling.
 
     According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Unit 2 at Surry was operating at 5 percent of capacity on Monday.
 
     Dominion had powered down Unit 2 at Surry on Nov. 1. The Richmond-based energy provider originally planned to take the reactor offline earlier but delayed those plans because of the threat of Hurricane Sandy.
 
     Dominion also had planned to do a variety of maintenance work, including inspecting and cleaning piping and portions of the unit's three steam generators.
 
     Surry's Unit 1 continues to operate at full power.
