Vogtle reactor shutdown reported | The Augusta Chronicle

One of Plant Vogtle’s reactors was shutdown Saturday after a malfunction.

According to an Nuclear Regulatory Commission notification issued Saturday, unit two was at full power when the turbine tripped causing an automatic reactor trip. Control rods were fully inserted and nothing unusual was noted. Also, auxiliary feed water and feedwater isolation actuated as expected.
