Word is they had LP turbine damage due to a bad sync in the past; extended the outage; must fix prior to starting up.

Damaged LP turbine and an outage extension?  Sounds like Perry will be on the auction block again.

I've been in Perry and I believe it is a safe and very good overall site.

I was at Perry in '94 (10 years gone nigh) and found that it had a paranoid personality. Management was out to make examples of those who screwed up. A fine example they themselves made. Most of the house techs were good people, but there were a couple of strange ones. Some of the management people were real ignorant @#%@#*s. However, if you kept a low profile, it was a good money maker. You were limited to 5 12s, so you always got a 2 day off. The 3 month outage went for over 7. I'm sure it has changed since then, and I hope it has been for the better.

They are the only White Finding RP Dept. in the country. One of the hottest dose wise also. They will work you hard during outages . Last outage they paid the Bartlett Techs $65 a day diem and then brought in house techs from other utilities and paid them $205 a day diem. First Energy has proven that they dont know how to operate nuke plants safely. Be very wary of going there. The walk into the plant from the contractors parking lot alone will hurt you.

Not a BAD place to work. 9 out of 10 house techs are good people. Management has improved since 1994 BUT ... The last outage was a real bear for them. Alot of things went wrong. Dose was wasted by certain supervisors who were out of their element. I usually work there for outages and special projects (and like it) but after last outage I told the RPM that because of the hassle with supervision, the wasted dose (three nightshift seniors picked up over 700mR in the first 10 days), the walk into the plant, etc. ,I wouldn't be back unless the money went up.

Hey Phil75.  Was the plant being managed by First Energy when you were there?  I have just been offered a job there in the training department and would appreciate any more information.

Yes, I worked here from March through December, and it lived up to all the hype.

It was a combination of Mardi Gras, Spring Break, and Woodstock. It was fun, but I didn't get alot of sleep.......:)

Well it certainly is a stretch goal, but its like the Beav no one believed we could do it and pow 23 day outage.   It can be done, and its just about working the schedule and COMMUNICATION!! We brought soem butt-kickers up here from The Beav so It might not be a pleasant outage but I think it will be successful.

If you know where someone is please contact that person and let them know, giving them the option of contact. Not everyone wants to be found.

The information regarding overseas techs applies much more broadly than to one plant only. That portion has been split off into a new topic:

The outage is just about over here.
We are sitting on 350 Rem for the total. Still a lot of work to do yet.
Massive layoff this Friday. It should just about clear the place of all contractors, except for the golden children.
Bright side: It didn't even snow this week.

Can anybody provide me with an email address or phone number for a nuke recruiter or ops manager type at Perry / FirstEnergy?  I'm transitioning out of the Navy soon and would like to discuss career opportunities at NE Ohio's only nuke plant.

I am surprised there is nothing written about Perry's outage yet.  I will be there on March 9th for 3 weeks.  I haven't heard anything good through the grape vine.  Short on tech's, lots of PCE's, uptakes, etc.  I guess I'll find out whats true and whats not next week.

There has been enough written about the place to know what to expect when you get there!
Some things will never change...even in 15 years!
Just remember that if you want a break, you can frisk tools for a while then your "break" is over!, oh & "we don't have to give you a lunch!"
