Unit 1 running again at the power plant

BERWICK – Unit 1 at PPL’s Susquehanna Nuclear Power Plant near Berwick is up and running again following a turbine blade inspection. The inspection found signs of cracking on a small number of turbine blades. The blades were replaced and PPL officials say they now know what is causing the cracks and are finalizing plans to fix the problems. Unit 2 will be shut down in the near future for a similar turbine blade inspection and replacement of blades. Long term repairs will be made in the spring of 2013. (Ali Stevens)
