Surry Nuclear Unit 1 Automatically Trips Offline

Unit 1 at the Surry nuclear power plant in Virginia automatically tripped offline.
According to a report with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the cause was a generator differential lockout turbine trip that led to the reactor shutting down. The generator differential lockout is currently under investigation.
All backup systems are operating as designed, and the control rods fully inserted during the trip. Unit 2 continues to operate at full power.
