Entergy—James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant -
APTIM provides best-in-class maintenance, modification and construction services to Entergy at the James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant located in the town of Scriba, near Oswego, New York, on the southeast shore of Lake Ontario. The nuclear power plant has one General Electric boiling water reactor. Entergy announced in November 2015 that it planned to shut down and decommission the FitzPatrick plant, later setting the timing to cease operations as late January 2017.
UPDATE: On July 13, Entergy announced that it is in discussions with Exelon Corporation for the potential sale of the James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant. The discussions with Exelon are consistent with Entergy’s commitment to consider any viable option that would allow FitzPatrick to remain in operation.
