Subject: Completion of Refueling Outage

Discussion:

On May 3, 1999, Perry operators synchronized the plant main generator to
the electrical grid at 9:49 p.m., ending the seventh Perry Nuclear Power
Plant refueling outage. The outage officially commenced on March 27,
1999, when operators removed the main turbine generator from service.
Major activities completed during the outage included: refueling of the
reactor, jet pump cleaning, ten year maintenance on the Division 2
emergency diesel generator, fuel assembly inspections, reactor pressure
vessel nozzle inspections, elimination of the main steam isolation valve
leakage control system, and plant material condition improvements. As of
8:00 a.m. on May 4, 1999, the plant was at approximately 28 percent power
and startup testing was in progress.

Regional Action:

The resident inspector staff monitored the outage activities and plant
startup and startup testing activities.
