Upcoming key events include conducting initial grid synchronization for Main Turbine-Generator testing, performing a readiness and effectiveness review prior to exceeding 50% power, placing a second main feedwater pump in service, and power ascension to 100% power. Absent significant performance or equipment problems these events are scheduled to be accomplished in the next five to seven days.
