PRINCETON — Duke Energy’s Gibson Generating Station plans maintenance work on a unit beginning this week, which could bring about 200 contractors to the power plant over the next month.

District Manager Kurt Phegley reported unit 3 will be shut down for maintenance, after gaining permission from the Midwest Independent System Operator Inc. (MISO) to bring the unit down.

Phegley said the work should be completed in about a month, or Nov. 1 at the latest.

About 300 people work at Gibson Generating Station, and Phegley said the work will be done with about 200 additional contract maintenance workers on the site, observing COVID-19 precautions including masks, temperature checks, social distancing and sanitizing stations available for employees and contractors.
