Sudden drop in the reactor water level shuts down Pilgrim Nuke Plant in Plymouth, MA

RSOE Report

 

“The Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station experienced an unplanned shutdown, known as a “scram,” at 12:09 p.m. Friday, according to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The shutdown occurred when a feedwater regulating valve unexpectedly closed, resulting in a drop in the reactor’s water level. That initiated the protection system and shutdown, which involves the insertion of all control rods into the nuclear core to halt the fissioning process . . . “
