North Anna Power Station Shuts Down Reactor

by Associated Press posted Apr 8 2013 4:37PM
   LOUISA, Va. (AP) - One of the nuclear reactors at Dominion Virginia Power's North Anna power station has been shut down for refueling. 
 
     The Richmond Times-Dispatch says the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission released figures showing the utility shut down Unit 2 over the weekend. 
 
     Refueling is typically conducted at 18-month intervals, and generally takes about one month. 
 
     In a memo to employees, the Richmond-based utility said a portion of the unit's reactor fuel will be replaced and a number of maintenance activities will be performed. Maintenance includes repairs to a reactor coolant system valve on one of the unit's three steam generators and seal maintenance on two of the unit's three reactor coolant pumps.
 
     The NRC figures show Unit 1 at North Anna is operating at 100 percent capacity.
