Indian Point 2 back online

BUCHANAN – The Indian Point Unit 2 nuclear power plant returned to service on Thursday after repairs were completed on the speed control system on one of the unit’s two main boiler feed pumps.

The plant was shut down manually on Monday afternoon following an issue with the feed pump’s speed control system, which regulates pump speed to match turbine load.  The main boiler feed pumps are located on the non-nuclear side of the plant and feed water into the plant’s four steam generators so it can be heated and turned into steam to make electricity.

Both of unit 2’s main boiler feed pumps were inspected prior to returning the plant to service.
