LIMERICK UNIT 1 TO BE SHUT DOWN BRIEFLY FOR MOTOR REPLACEMENT

 LIMERICK UNIT 1 TO BE SHUT DOWN BRIEFLY FOR MOTOR REPLACEMENT
 PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Philadelphia Electric Company (NYSE: PE) said that Unit 1 at its Limerick Generating Station in Montgomery County will be taken off line tonight for replacement of a small valve motor.
 PE said the motor, one of many that control a series of reactor high pressure coolant injection system (HPCI) valves, malfunctioned.
 The HPCI system would operate in the event of a reactor emergency. Therefore, the valve must be replaced. The job will take about seven days.
 Unit 1, which has run continuously for 188 days, has operated at a better than 92 percent capacity factor during 1991, producing more than 8 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, making it one of the most reliable reactors in the nation.
 Limerick Unit 2 will be unaffected by the Unit 1 shutdown. It continues to operate at full power.
