BUCHANAN – The Indian Point nuclear power plant unit two has been shut down for its 23rd and final scheduled refueling and maintenance outage.

Entergy will also perform upgrades to the facility, said spokesman Jerry Nappi.

“In order for the plant to run reliably for another two years the company made a commitment to invest a sizeable sum of money, more than $75 million in plant equipment to ensure reliability going forward, and that is a commitment the company makes to run each of its units reliability at a world class level,” Nappi said.

This refueling will take about a month.

Indian Point unit two is scheduled to shut down by April 20, 2020.

Indian Point unit three will have its final refueling next spring and will permanently shut down by April 30, 2021.
