That should be obvious,

   The Springfield Nuclear
   Power is closed  +-----------+
   for rennovation. |           |
                    |    ...    |
                    |           |
                    .           .

versus

   The Springfield Nuclear
   Power Plant is c+-----------+
   rennovation.    |           |
                   |    ...    |
                   |           |
                   .           .

or

  +-----------------------+
  |The Springfield Nuclear|
  |Power is closed        |
  |for rennovation.       |
  +-----------------------+

versus

  +-----------------------+
  |The Springfield Nuclear|
  |Power Plant is closed f|r
  |rennovation.           |
  +-----------------------+

etc.
