Unit 1 of the Cook Nuclear Plant is back online following its refueling outage. The unit connected to the transmission grid at 4:13 pm Monday after a 30 day outage. This particular outage was notably shorter than past outages, in part due to deliberate efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Along with refueling and doing regular maintenance and testing, crews upgraded the main control room electrical distribution system. They also did inspections on the main generator that were required following a stator rewind project completed in the previous refueling outage in the spring of 2019.
