DETROIT EDISON POWER PLANTS RECORD BEST-EVER AVAILABILITY

 DETROIT EDISON POWER PLANTS RECORD BEST-EVER AVAILABILITY
 DETROIT, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit Edison's fossil-fuel power plants were available to generate electricity 90.41 percent of the time in 1991, achieving their best-ever availability mark for a full year.
 Record availability, according to Frank E. Agosti, senior vice president, Power Supply, came as a result of improved teamwork among Engineering, Fuel Supply, Operations and Maintenance groups, while maintaining record safety performance.
 "We're pleased with this achievement," said Agosti, "because higher plant availability leads to more cost-effective plant operations."
 The Monroe, Harbor Beach and Trenton Channel power plants helped set the 1991 availability record with figures of 90.16 percent, 92.83 percent and 96.18 percent, respectively. Units with all-time availability records were Monroe 1 and 2, with 94.92 percent and 98.26 percent, respectively, and St. Clair 3 and 7, with 97.32 percent and 91.47 percent, respectively.
