The 1,681 MW Beaver Valley station is situated in Beaver county, about 35 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

The station has 892 MW unit 1 and the 846 MW unit 2, which have entered service in 1976 and 1987.

The unit 2 at the station continued to operate at full power.

FirstEnergy has filed with NRC to renew the original 40-year operating licenses for both units for another 20 years, in 2007.
