Unit 1 at nuclear plant returns to full power

Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant’s Unit 1 returned to full power at 12 a.m. today, Xcel Energy said.

Operators returned the unit to full power after workers replaced a reactor coolant pump seal during an outage that started on Dec. 10.

The situation posed no danger to the public or plant workers, Xcel said, and Unit 2 continued to operate at full power.
