Exelon Generation's New Maryland Natural Gas Power Plant Begins Commercial Operation on June 28, 2015
Jun 29 15
Exelon Generation's 120 megawatt Perryman 6 natural gas power generating unit began commercial operation on June 28. Located at the company's Perryman Generating Station near Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, Perryman 6 increases the station's full generating capacity to 475 megawatts. The Pratt & Whitney Power Systems design FT4000 SWIFTPAC® power generation unit consists of two simple cycle, aero-derivative combustion turbines. Perryman 6 is a peaking unit, meaning that it typically generates electricity during periods of high electric demand. The unit will run mainly on natural gas but will also have the ability to run on oil as a back-up, ensuring fuel diversity and reliability.
GEH and Exelon Unveil New Remote Uncoupling Tool
Apr 1 15
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy in coordination with Exelon Generation, has unveiled a new remote uncoupling tool used for nuclear power plant maintenance. This new tool remotely disconnects - uncouples - control rods (one of the pieces of equipment that allows operators to control power production) from their associated blades at the bottom of the reactor during preventative maintenance. Utilizing the battery-powered, wireless device minimizes the amount of radiation that workers are exposed to and allows parallel work activities to take place under the reactor pressure vessel during service outages. The tool has been shown to reduce radiation dose associated with uncoupling by as much as 60%. The tool, based on 3-D printed prototypes created on-site at GEH's world headquarters in Wilmington, N.C., has been successfully deployed during recent maintenance work at the Dresden Generating Station in Morris, Ill. and the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in Delta, Pa. A total of 19 drives were uncoupled with the tool at Peach Bottom and 25 were uncoupled at Dresden. Control rod blades are long, cruciform metal-tube components that contain neutron-absorbing material and are positioned adjacent to nuclear fuel assemblies within the reactor core. Operators remotely adjust the position of these blades to manage power generation. In order to remove control rod blades during service outages the blades must be uncoupled from drive mechanisms underneath the reactor pressure vessel. Any blades that are not successfully uncoupled from underneath the vessel must be uncoupled from a refueling floor above the vessel, a more time consuming process. Because of the tool's effectiveness it was not necessary to conduct any uncoupling from the refueling floor during the Dresden and Peach Bottom outages.
Exelon Generation to Develop 195 MW of New Electric Capacity in Medway, MA
Feb 5 15
Exelon Generation announced that it will add 195 megawatts (MW) of highly efficient, fast-starting electric generation capacity to help meet future energy needs in New England. Two new generation units will be built as an expansion to Exelon's existing generating facility in Medway, MA. The units will operate primarily during times of peak energy demand. Both units will run mainly on natural gas, but will have the ability to run on ultra-low-sulfur distillate fuel oil as a back-up, ensuring fuel diversity and reliability. The units will enhance the reliability of the New England region's electric system, and provide a fast-starting back-up for intermittent renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind. Both generating units will be equipped with the latest emissions control technology and will meet all applicable federal and state environmental regulations. Exelon Generation is currently in the permitting phase for the Medway expansion. Construction is expected to begin in 2017 and be completed by mid-year 2018.
