FirstEnergy to upgrade Pennsylvania nuclear plant
- FirstEnergy (FE), owner of the Beaver Valley nuclear plant in Pennsylvania, is likely to spend hundreds of millions of dollars during a major construction project in 2017.
- FE plans to replace Unit 2's three steam generators and its reactor head in a project expected to take slightly longer than a normal refueling, which usually lasts ~30 days.
- A similar replacement and maintenance project was completed on Unit 1 of the Shippingport plant in 2006.
