TVA loads fuels Browns Ferry Unit 1

ATHENS — Workers at Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant began loading fuel into the Unit 1 reactor Friday, a key step in returning the unit to operation.

Loading the fuel is expected to take about two weeks. The Unit 1 restart project is 97 percent complete, with return to service scheduled by May.

TVA Chief Nuclear Officer Karl Singer said he is pleased with the work being done at Browns Ferry and the transition to an operating facility.

"This significant milestone for Browns Ferry and TVA's nuclear program means that plant systems required to move fuel to the reactor and maintain it safely have been returned to service," Singer said. "We are returning Unit 1 to operation in a deliberate and planned manner based on our previous experience with units 2 and 3."
