The NextEra Energy (NYSE:NEE) Seabrook 1 nuclear unit in New Hampshire, which experienced an unplanned outage a few days earlier, was back generating power March 7.
The plant was listed at 35% power generation early March 7, according to data issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The plant should be back at full power soon, a company spokesperson said March 7.
Seabrook had gone offline early March 2 after experiencing a turbine trip.
Seabrook is a single-unit pressurized water reactor (PWR) located in Rockingham County, N.H. The facility went commercial in 1990. It is listed in GenerationHub data with a generating capacity in excess of 1,200 MW.
Seabrook’s existing license expires in March 2030. The company has filed for a license renewal from the NRC that would extend the operating license another 20 years.
