The Dominion (NYSE:D) North Anna 1 nuclear unit in Virginia concluded its refueling outage and maintenance outage on Oct. 16, a Dominion spokesperson confirmed.
It went back onto the grid at 6:21 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, the spokesperson said. The unit was listed at 30% power early Oct. 17, according to Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) data.
During the outage, one third of the reactor fuel was replaced with new fuel, and many maintenance activities were performed. Key activities during this outage included an In Service Inspection (ISI) of the reactor vessel internals.
North Anna 2, which refueled this past spring, continued to run at full power during the North Anna 1 outage.
North Anna 1, located in Louisa County, Virginia, started its refueling outage around Sept. 10. The North Anna station includes two pressurized water reactors (PWRs) that each has a nameplate capacity of more than 950 MW.
Dominion executives might discuss the nuclear refueling outage during the company’s upcoming earnings conference call on Oct. 30.
