Nine Mile Point 2 Shuts Down for Maintenance

LCG, Feb. 26, 2001Niagara Mohawk Power Corp. took its 1,148 megawatt Nine Mile Point 2 nuclear power plant near Oswego, N.Y. out of service yesterday for scheduled maintenance expected to last a week.

Niagara Mohawk operates Nine Mile Point 2 and owns 41 percent of the facility. Other owners are New York State Electric & Gas Corp. with 18 percent, Long island Power Authority with 18 percent, Rochester Gas & Electric Co. with 14 percent and Central Hudson Gas & Electric Co. with 9 percent.
