Electrical Fault Triggers Fire at Indian Point Energy Center


By Editors of Power Engineering

A small fire broke out at Indian Point Energy Center’s unit 2 due to an electrical glitch.

The fire was self-extinguished soon after it started, the Journal News reported.

Entergy spokesman Jerry Nappi said there was no impact on plant operations, and that both units continue to operate at full power.

A notice of unusual event was briefly declared for the New York plant, which is the lowest of the levels ranked by the U.S. Regulatory Commission.

Plant operators are investigating the cause of the electrical fault.
