What is the current status of Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station?
OPPD’s Fort Calhoun Station is now safely restarting after meeting all the necessary requirements. It remains under the special oversight of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
Why is OPPD bringing Exelon Nuclear to help with Fort Calhoun Station recovery?
Exelon has a proven track record of running top-performing nuclear plants and helping plants recover and achieve sustained operational excellence.
The largest operator of nuclear power plants in the U.S., Exelon has vast resources and experience. Exelon is not purchasing the plant.
What will this cost OPPD and its customer-owners?
From 2012 through the end of November 2013, Operations and maintenance costs were $129.2 million, capital costs were $51 million.
To help offset the costs, non-safety-related projects were delayed around the District and OPPD was able to spread the costs over ten years.
