Sizewell B has been switched back on after being off-grid for more than nine weeks for refuelling and important maintenance work. The nuclear power station stopped generating electricity at the end of May as 1,200 specialist workers joined the 800 workers on site for the £60million outage project. The station is brought offline every 18 months where a third of the fuel is replaced in the reactor and thousands of maintenance jobs are completed during this work period. As well as refuelling the reactor at Sizewell B, workers completed 15,000 maintenance tasks at the power station.
