Davis Besse to get new generators and plans for operating extension

In a release, McDermott said it scheduled the delivery of the steam generators for 2013.

Nuclear steam generators create the steam required for electrical power generation. They weigh more than 450 tons each and require more than five years to design and fabricate.

FirstEnergy has told the NRC it plans to file for a 20-year extension of the original 40-year operating license for the plant in August 2010.
