Perry Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1 is located in Perry, Ohio approximately 35 miles northeast of Cleveland, Ohio. The General Electric BWR is operated by First Energy Nuclear Operating Co. The plant is owned by Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company (44.9%), Ohio Edison Co. (30.0%), Toledo Edison Co. (19.9%) and Pennsylvania Power Co. (5.2%) — all of which are wholly owned subsidiaries of First Energy Corp. The unit is licensed to operated until March 18, 2026. The second unit at the plant (including its own cooling tower) can be seen in the photo; however, construction of the unit was suspended in 1985 after all major structures and buildings were finished, and the unit was cancelled in 1994.
The ISFSI for Perry is expected to be operable in 2012. The ISFSI is located between the unfinished Unit 2 reactor building and its cooling tower. The concrete storage pad is 347 feet long and 75 feet wide, and capable of holding 80 dry storage casks. First Energy plans to use the Holtec Hi-Storm cask system and the MPC-68 storage canister. The above photo only shows the concrete storage pad.
