The steam generator and reactor vessel head at the Beaver Valley reactor 2 in Pennsylvania will be replaced in 2017, said Paul Harden, senior vice president in charge of fleet engineering at FirstEnergy, the plant's operator. The project is expected to cost "several hundred million dollars," said Eric Larson, vice president at the plant. The replacement of two steam generators at FirstEnergy's Davis-Besse plant in Ohio will begin in February, Harden said.
