TURKEY POINT RETURNS TO SERVICE

                    TURKEY POINT RETURNS TO SERVICE
    MIAMI, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida Power & Light Company


announced today that its nuclear generating stations, Turkey Point Units 3 and 4 returned to service Oct. 1 and Oct. 29, 1991, respectively, after a planned 11 month outage.
    The outage was utilized to incorporate increased emergency power capability and modernization of the plant's security system to satisfy emerging federal safety requirements.  Work was performed by the plant's permanent staff of approximately 1,000 employees and a supplemental contractor work force of some 1,600 people.
    The work was completed prior to the original schedule deadline of Nov. 4, 1991.  Regarding this accomplishment, Jerry Goldberg, FPL Nuclear Division president, said, "Major modifications to nuclear plants requiring long shutdowns have rarely been completed on time. In this particular case, given the magnitude and complexity of the changes, the accomplishment is nothing short of phenomenal.  The Turkey Point outage team of FPL employees and various contractors did a superb job."
