Hope Creek nuclear reactor returns online

Salem and Hope Creek

Hope Creek, a single unit boiling water reactor consisting of 1,210 MW in generating capacity, put their nuclear reactor back online after high moisture in the main turbine forced the reactor to be taken offline twice, according to a report on NewJersey.com. Hope Creek originally was taken offline Dec. 1 when high moisture in the steam tripped the main turbine, then taken offline again on Thursday for the same issue.

Early Tuesday morning the reactor was synched back to the grid.
