Second leak found at Palisades nuclear power plant

The single-unit, 811 MW Palisades nuclear power plant in Michigan was shut down August 12 after a steam leak was discovered near the control rod drive mechanism.

Entergy (NYSE: ETR) workers initially shut down the unit on June 12 to investigate coolant leakage in the refueling storage tank. The plant was returned to service on July 11.

There is no word on when the unit will return to service.
