As a follow-up to our communication of December 28, 2022, regarding completing steam blows on the first of three units at the facility, Guernsey Power Station (GPS) is pleased to announce the major milestone of completing steam blows on the second of three units at the facility. As been communicated previously, steam blows produce significantly higher sound levels than the remaining commissioning activities and normal operation. This second unit is now expected to operate consistent with the stringent sound requirements set by the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) for the facility.
As previously communicated on September 14, 2023, the 3rd unit mechanical repair is complete. The unit will be restarted today, September 15, 2023, at approximately 4:00pm
