Entergy (NYSE: ETR) said Unit 2 at the 2,069 MW Indian Point nuclear power plant near Buchanan, NY, automatically shut down Wednesday, June 6. Workers are investigating the main electrical generator, located on the non-nuclear side of the plant, as a probable cause of the shutdown.
Entergy said there was no release of radioactivity and equipment performed normally during the shutdown.
Unit 2 was online for sixty-seven days following completion of its twentieth refueling shutdown in April. Unit 3 is currently operating at full power.
