Work Boosts Local Economy by Bringing in 1,100 Additional Workers
Control room operators shut down Entergy’s Indian Point Unit 3 nuclear power plant in Buchanan this morning to begin a nearly $100 million refueling and maintenance outage after 453 days of continuous operation. This work brings 1,000 additional workers and economic benefits to the region, and reinforces Entergy’s commitment to continued safe and reliable operations through the plant’s planned permanent shutdown in 2021.

Control room operators removed Entergy’s River Bend Nuclear Station from service on Jan. 28 to begin its 19th scheduled refueling and maintenance outage. River Bend is investing more than $61 million to complete the refueling and other important projects. That investment translates to additional economic activity for the surrounding communities from dozens of vendors and over 1,100 additional contract workers, many from outside the area.
