All three Oconee Nuclear Station reactors will soon have new steam generators

(Seneca-AP) Dec. 24, 2004 - Officials at the Oconee Nuclear Station say they are close to replacing steam generators in all three of the station's reactors.

Workers installed the 500-ton, 70-foot generators and replaced vessel heads during refueling outages beginning in April 2003.

Duke Power decided to replace the vessel heads nearly four years ago after discovering small cracks in the equipment.

Station spokeswoman Linda Conley says Unit Three was the last unit to receive the new generator and should be back on line next week.
