Good news for once; an anniversary!
Catawba Nuclear Station just hit 25 years of operation, as reported by the Herald out of Rock Hill, S.C. The plant is owned and operated by Duke Energy; the two plants are Westinghouse four-loop PWR's rated 3411 MWt / 1129 MWe and went into service in June 1985 and August 1986. The operating licenses have been extended for both through December 2043.
