EPZ uprates Borssele plant

25 January 2007

[EPZ, 24 January] EPZ's Borssele nuclear power plant in Netherlands completed a EUR43 million ($56 million) turbine replacement in December 2006, which has uprated the plant by 7.3%, from 452 to 485 MWe. The project involved a new inner casting, including new rotor and blades for the turbine; new water separators; replacement of the turbine's measuring, control and safety system; and replacing the generator stator by way of a precaution. The project followed a mid-2006 extension of its operating life to 2033.
