The Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant reached full operational power Thursday after being shut down for more than 2 1/2 years.
It took a week to restart the plant after the Omaha Public Power District received permission from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to restore power last Tuesday, said Jeff Hanson, an OPPD spokesman.
