“Operators shut down the Unit 2 reactor at the Limerick nuclear plant in Montgomery County on Wednesday morning because of an electrical component malfunction that impacted the operation of recirculating water pumps, officials said. The recirculating water pumps are one of several systems that cool the reactor. ” – RSOE Report
hmmm … nuke reactor without cooling … where have we heard that before?
Mining Awareness – Did Limerick Nuclear Reactor Scram Due to Another Defective ABB Part?
“Was the trip due to an electrical fault at Limerick Nuclear Reactor Unit 2 caused by yet another defective ABB part? ABB is Swedish-Swiss. And, quality assurance, or lack thereof, is the responsibility of the parent company, i.e. ABB. Were defects acceptable when original Swiss Brown Boveri (BBC)-the BB in ABB- was making parts for Nazi submarines? Would it be acceptable in Sweden or Switzerland?
This region seems to be unevacuable in a major nuclear emergency. Most likely many will be told to “shelter in place” . . . “
