- PPL Corp Says Susquehanna Nuclear Power Plant Operating Normally
Aug 23, 2011
The earthquake felt throughout the mid-Atlantic region has not affected regular operation at PPL Corporation's (NYSE:PPL) Susquehanna nuclear power plant near Berwick, the company announced.
Unit 1 of the plant continues to operate normally at full normal power while unit 2 had previously shut down for maintenance and remains in safe, stable conditions.
PPL is delaying the return of Unit 2 to full power as a precautionary measure.
PPL has declared an "unusual event" as a result of the earthquake. An unusual event is the lowest of four emergency classifications established by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission for nuclear power plants.
