NRC approves uprates

1 January 2002

The NRC has approved a request by Exelon to increase the generating capacity of Dresden 2 and 3 and Quad Cities 1 and 2.

The power uprate at Dresden 2 and 3 will increase the power of each reactor by 17% to 912MWe. The power uprate at Quad Cities 1 and 2 will increase the power of each reactor by 17.8%, to 912MWe.

Application for the increases was submitted to the NRC in December 2000. Exelon intends to implement the power uprate immediately for Dresden 2. Uprates for the other reactors will be implemented during outages scheduled for 2002 and 2003.
