1761kw
Average power production near maximum. Power costs will drop. Equipment damage was very light.

1890 on "normal", a little less than 1400 with "difficult", due to a secondary coolant leak forcing maintenance

OK, I went back and tried harder: 1945 on normal. I think there's room to bump that up a few, but probably not higher than 1955.
