[UPDATED] GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy has been awarded an outage services contract from Exelon Generation, operator of the largest fleet of nuclear power plants in the country in a deal valued at $140 million, the companies said.
The contract covers Exelon's entire fleet of boiling water reactors and three pressurized water units and is to run through the spring outage season in 2021.
GEH will provide a full portfolio of outage and inspection services for 15 boiling water reactors, as well as the R.E. Ginna PWR in Ontario, New York and the two PWRs at Calvert Cliffs in Lusby, Maryland.
The agreement covers refuel floor activities and performing under-vessel and inspection services for the Exelon fleet, which produces enough electricity to power approximately 14 million homes.
“Whether it’s through outage services or our recently announced digital partnership, we’re excited to help Exelon deliver on the industry’s initiative to advance safety, reliability and economic performance,” said Lance Hall, executive vice president, Nuclear Services, GEH, in praise of the contract that banks on a long-term alliance between the two companies.
