LIMERICK PA – Exelon Corp.’s Limerick Generating Station will conduct its annual Community Information Night, showing how its operators “safely harness the power of the atom to provide electricity to two million homes and businesses,” on May 16 (2013; Thursday), from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at the company’s Limerick Learning Center, 3146 Sanatoga Rd., representative Dana Melia said.
Station employees will be on hand to tell visitors about station operations, site maintenance, engineering practices, environmental stewardship, industrial safety, radiological safety, site security, emergency preparedness, and license renewal. Visitors can also tour the plant’s main control room simulator, which is used to train reactor operators. Children can try on night-vision goggles, obtain a souvenir Limerick badge and wear safety gear.
This year PJM Interconnection, the Linfield Fire Department, Montgomery County, and the Pennsylvania Energy Alliance also will participate in the event.
“Community Information Night is a great opportunity to see a working nuclear station up close, and meet the men and women who are dedicated to running it safely and reliably,” said Limerick Site Vice President Tom Dougherty.
Visitors should enter the plant at the intersection of Evergreen and Sanatoga Roads and park in the upper parking lot, which is located just past the cooling towers. A bus will transport visitors to the Learning Center. For more information, call Melia at (610)-718-3025 or send an e-mail, here.
