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."
