 Limerick nuclear unit back online after brief outage

Caption: Exelon's Limerick nuclear power plant, located in Pennsylvania.

Workers at the Limerick nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania brought Unit 1 back online after it was shut down.
 
The reactor automatically shut down Feb. 23 after a valve closed and raised the pressure in the reactor. The closure may have been caused by a loss of primary containment instrument gas pneumatic supply to the valve.
 
The outage did not impact electrical service to customers.
