DTE Energy awards GE outage service contract

GE Power and Water Services recently was contracted by DTE Energy to service the Fermi 2 nuclear reactor in southeast Michigan during a planned outage in the fall.

GE Hitachi (GEH) will perform outage and inspection services to the plant, and GE Power Generation Services (PGS) will provide maintenance and inspection services to the main generation unit and six turbine valves.

The reactor has a maximum capacity of 1,170 megawatts and is a boiling water reactor that is capable of powering approximately 1 million residences.

“These awards are outstanding examples of the comprehensive, end-to-end solutions that GE Power & Water provides to nuclear power customers,” Lance Hall, senior vice president, Nuclear Services and Fuels for GEH, said. “We’re pleased to strengthen our alliance with DTE Energy and look forward to bringing project management excellence, technical rigor, industry-leading performance and innovative technology solutions to the fall outage at Fermi 2.”

GEH and DTE also have reached a partnership in the construction of a new GEH Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactor unit. The utility was successful in gaining approval from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in April. The unit is expected to have a maximum output of 1,500 megawatts of electricity.
