Wolf Creek Generating Station shuts down to address air conditioning issue

Late Wednesday, Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation personnel commenced a plant shut down to repair one of the station’s air conditioning units that provides cooling to electrical equipment located inside of the plant.

Wolf Creek personnel are investigating the causes for the higher than normal vibration of the unit and will perform the necessary repairs prior to bringing the plant back on line. It is unknown at this time how long the plant will be shut down for repairs.

“Our top priority is to safely operate Wolf Creek Generating Station and reliable operations of these air conditioning units is key to that priority,” said Russell Smith, Wolf Creek site vice president. “We have dedicated, experienced personnel working hard to fix this issue and ensure Wolf Creek continues to provide our customers and community members safe and reliable electricity.”
