Exelon (NYSE:EXC) returned the Oyster Creek nuclear plant in New Jersey to full power shortly before 6 p.m. on Dec. 19, the company said in a news release.
Oyster Creek returned to service following a planned maintenance outage that began on Tuesday, Dec. 13. Operators reconnected to the power grid on Dec. 19 after successfully repairing a system that monitors turbine conditions, including temperature, pressure and speed.
The Oyster Creek shutdown did not have an impact on electrical service, the company said. Oyster Creek is located about 60 miles east of Philadelphia in Ocean County, New Jersey. The boiling water reactor (BWR) plant produces 636 MW (net) at full power.
Exelon Generation previously announced a few years ago that Oyster Creek will close in 2019.
