Pilgrim Safe After Thursday Shutdown
Pilgrim Station was shut down Thursday afternoon and will be restarted after repairs are completed, Pilgrim spokesman says.
Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station is in safe condition and will be restarted after personnel investigate the cause of a trip of the plant's recirculation pumps Thursday afternoon.
Operators initiated a manual shutdown of the plant Thursday at 3:34 p.m, according to a release from Entergy spokesman Carol Wightman.
"The plant is in a safe condition and plant personnel are investigating the cause," the release says. "The plant will be restarted after a thorough evaluation and any necessary repairs are completed. The plant had been online continuously for 230 days at the time of the shutdown."
