Valve problem shuts Indian Point
A reactor at the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Buchanan has been shut down because of a valve problem.
Entergy Nuclear says Indian Point 3 was safely turned off at 1:53 a.m. Friday with no release of radiation.
The issue centered on a valve that controls the flow of water into a steam generator.
“Indian Point Unit 3’s operators manually tripped the reactor after the main feedwater regulating valve for the 33 (one 3 designating Unit 3, the other 3 the third steam generator for 33) steam generator experienced a failure (failed open), resulting in rising coolant levels in the steam generator that could not be corrected,” wrote the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in a statement.
