LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - An outage for maintenance and refueling is planned for unit 2 at the Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant in southwestern Michigan.

The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph and WLKM-FM report the outage starts Wednesday at the plant in Berrien County’s Lake Township, near Bridgman.

Indiana Michigan Power says the unit had been running with no issues. Plant spokesman Bill Schalk says about 2,500 contract workers are being brought in to help about 1,200 regular employees with the work. Schalk says new equipment will be installed.

The length of the planned shutdown at the plant along Lake Michigan hasn’t been released.

Indiana Michigan Power, a subsidiary of Ohio-based American Electric Power Co., operates both reactors at the facility.
