Indian Point 3 nuclear unit quickly returns to service

Entergy's (NYSE: ETRIndian Point 3 nuclear power plant in New York returned to service less than 24 hours after it automatically shut down.
 
The plant went down June 15 after a breaker failed in a switchyard located across the street from the plant. The switchyard receives electricity from the plant and distributes it out to the electrical grid. The breaker failure resulted in the unit’s main electrical generator shutting down as designed, which led to the reactor tripping offline.
 
All equipment operated as designed during the shutdown, and Unit 2 continued to operate at full power.
