 DUKE POWER'S CATAWBA NUCLEAR STATION POSTS RECORD SIX MONTHS
 CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Duke Power Co.'s (NYSE: DUK) Catawba Nuclear Station, located near Lake Wylie, S.C., operated at a record-breaking pace for the first six months of 1992.
 The two units at Catawba operated at 99.4 percent of full capacity for the first six months of 1992. This is the best six-month performance for any Duke Power nuclear station. The industry average for such capacity is about 70 percent. Duke's three nuclear stations operated at a record 79.8 percent capacity for 1991.
 From Oct. 3, 1991, to July 10, 1992, Catawba's unit 1 achieved a station record of 281 days of continuous operation. The unit was removed from service for a scheduled refueling on July 10.
 Utility Data Institute, a private research and data base company, recently rated all three of Duke's nuclear stations among the top 20 in the nation for the lowest nuclear production costs.
 "We are very proud of these accomplishments," said Mike Tuckman, Catawba's vice president. "Catawba's team takes pride in being a reliable, efficient and economical resource for meeting our customers' needs."
