Document Description
Metropolitan proposes to upgrade the ground fault protection system on eight of nine original Unit Power Centers (UPCs) at the Jensen Plant. These nine UPCs were installed during the original Plant construction. The upgraded ground fault protection system will limit and contain ground faults and improve Plant reliability by reducing the possibility of Plant shutdowns caused by unintentional power outages. The ninth UPC is not critical and need not be upgraded at this time. Metropolitan is also proposing to conduct retrofit work that will include structural reinforcement of the Jensen Plant Administrative Building's concrete roof structure, including the clerestory that covers the entrance and lobby, and strengthening of the interior shear walls. The recommended structural reinforcements will allow the building to better withstand a major seismic event, thereby enhancing Plant reliability.
