The Exelon (NYSE:EXC) Limerick 1 nuclear unit in Pennsylvania could be in the process of returning to service.
The facility was listed at 17% generation in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reactor status report early Feb. 26.
Limerick 1 was automatically shut down during the evening of Feb. 23 after a valve on one of the station’s main steam lines closed.
Units 1 and 2 are both boiling water reactors (BWRs). Each unit has a generating capacity of roughly 1,100 MW. Limerick Generating Station is located in Montgomery County, Pa., about 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
