Dominion Restarts Reactor at North Anna Plant

April 26, 2010

Dominion Virginia Power has restarted a nuclear reactor at its North Anna power station following a shutdown for refueling and maintenance.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says Unit 2 was operating at 12 percent capacity Monday morning.

Dominion Virginia Power restarted the reactor over the weekend. The utility took the reactor out of service in late March for refueling and routine maintenance.

North Anna's Unit 1 reactor continued to operate at 100 percent capacity during Unit 2's shutdown.

The reactors typically are shut down for refueling and maintenance every 18 months.
