Perry nuclear power plant restarted FirstEnergy leak discovered

The 1,268 MW Perry nuclear power plant in Ohio has restarted after a radioactive steam leak was discovered in the weld of a pipe early Sunday morning, according to a report from the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The plant could reconnect to the region’s grid over the weekend.

According to the report, the pipe is part of the reactor’s coolant recirculation system. A spokesperson for the plant said neither steam nor condensed water escaped into the plant or environment.

The leak was discovered a month after the plant came online after a maintenance and turbine upgrade outage.
