outage. The outage lasted approximately 10 days. Major activities that
were completed included: replacing the seal package on primary coolant
pump P-50A; repairing lube oil leaks on primary coolant pumps P-50B and
P-50D; and repairing position indicators on the pressurizer power
operated relief valves.
