Cook Nuclear Plant’s Unit 1 reactor back online

Donald Cook Nuclear Power Plant 1993

The refueling outage has ended at the Cook Nuclear Plant.

The Cook Plant Unit 1 went back online at 2:43 a.m. Tuesday, as crews finished refueling the reactor, performed their regular maintenance, and finished their testing work.

WSBT reports that the plant’s staff more than doubled in size during the 76-day outage, as 1,500 contract workers were brought in to help the 1,200 employees at the plant.

The outage lasted longer than expected due to a planned inspection and replacement of reactor vessel components.

Congratulations on a job well done.

Now we can have 24/7 backup again for those silly cyclopean pin wheels the left thinks can produce all our power.
