FRENCHTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - DTE Energy Co. says its Fermi 2 nuclear power plant in southeastern Michigan has resumed operations after being shut down for refueling and maintenance.

Utility spokesman John Austerberry says the plant began to synchronize with the power grid Thursday night and will be increasing power.

The Monroe News reports (https://bit.ly/2oZ5wVB ) the company completed Fermi 2’s 18th refueling outage in 33 days. During the outage, workers replaced a third of the fuel in the reactor and completed thousands of maintenance and testing activities.

The Detroit-based utility’s plant is located along Lake Erie in Monroe County’s Frenchtown Township.
