Nuclear plant begins maintenance work
Filters in both cooling towers must be replaced, Exelon says
BYRON – A buildup of silt and debris in filters has prompted Exelon Generation to begin a yearlong maintenance project to upgrade equipment inside both cooling towers at the Byron nuclear plant.
Exelon employees and about 200 supplemental contractors will replace the towers’ baffle-like water filters used for cooling, the company said in a news release Tuesday.
“Silt and debris has collected in the filters over decades of electricity production, slowing the water cooling process,” the release said.
