ENTERGY RESTARTS PILGRIM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

PLYMOUTH, Mass. - Entergy's Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station has returned to full service following a $70 million investment to upgrade, replace, overhaul and inspect hundreds of pieces of equipment. Control room operators reconnected Pilgrim to the grid after a 35-day planned shutdown to renew components and replace fuel in the reactor.

"Our 2015 refueling outage was a great success," said John Dent, the Site Vice President at Pilgrim. "Between months of planning and the careful execution of those plans made by our well-trained and professional employees, RFO-2015 will go down as one that not only resulted in a safer and more reliable plant, but demonstrated the ability of the whole Pilgrim team to do a great job."

Nearly 2,000 employees, including 1,184 extra contract workers, performed hundreds of activities that can be done only while the unit is shut down. The major activities included replacement of a water heater, post-Fukushima upgrades and condenser boot seal replacements.

Workers also conducted hundreds of additional activities, including the maintenance and inspection of dozens of components important to the safe and reliable operation of the plant.

The Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, in Plymouth, MA generates 680 megawatts of electricity, enough to power approximately 680,000 homes. During 2014, Pilgrim operated at 97 percent capacity.
