Fort Calhoun under new management

Exelon Generation is to take on the management of the Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant under an operating services agreement with Omaha Public Power District (OPPD). The plant has been offline since April 2011 and regulators must be satisfied with safety before restart.
Fort Calhoun’s single 478 MWe pressurised water reactor has been in an extended shutdown since April 2011, after flooding of the Missouri River interrupted a scheduled refuelling outage. Exelon Nuclear Partners, a division of Exelon Generation, has been assisting in the ‘recovery’ of the plant since January. Now the company is set to increase its involvement, providing day-to-day operations management. OPPD will remain the plant’s owner and licensed operator, and the plant will be staffed by a blended team of OPPD and Exelon employees.
