Exelon praises L-5 Zone 175 for nuclear outage work

Editor’s note: The letter below was addressed to Local 5 Zone 175 members Dan Gentile (day shift foreman) and Nicolas Carusone (night shift foreman) regarding the spring 2015 outage work performed by Boilermakers on unit 1 at the Nine Mile Nuclear Generating Station in Scriba, N.Y.

DAN AND NICK, I want to personally thank you and your team for the excellent support you provided to my team this outage. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the way you and your team worked safely and error free. This was the first time I did an outage utilizing boilermakers (I used to work the outages in the east, and we used in-house workers) and cannot be more happy with the results.

In reviewing our outage performance indicators, in addition to having zero first aids and one PCE, the disassembly and reassembly sections of the outage were both performed ahead of . . . schedule. Transitions were very well [done] as were look-aheads.

Thanks for your support, and I look forward to working with you next year on unit 2. Also I am looking for any feedback from you or your team on how we can improve next year in either equipment or process. Please email with any comments you have.

Thanks.
