Repairs to a power transformer required the temporary shutdown of a reactor at Exelon Generations’ Quad-Cities Generating Station located in Cordova, Illinois this past weekend.

According to an Exelon news released, the stations Unit 2 was taken offline just after midnight on Sunday to allow technicians to inspect, repair and test the transformer.

Quad Cities Unit 1 remained online, and customers were therefore not affected by the temporary shutdown.
