Condenser leaks reduce power at reactor

LOUISA, VIRGINIA - Dominion Virginia Power has reduced power in a reactor at its North Anna plant so crews can repair leaks in a water-condensing unit.

Dominion spokesman Richard Zuercher told The Richmond Times-Dispatch that the utility expects to return the Unit 2 reactor to full power soon.

Zuercher says Unit 2 was reduced to 84 percent capacity after the leaks were discovered January 6.

North Anna's other reactor, Unit 1, has continued to operate at full power.
