Pilgrim nuclear plant loses power, again
PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Shortly after off-site power had been restored, Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station lost power again, two days after being knocked out by the blizzard.
Pilgrim and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission announced that power resumed on Sunday, restored from one of the three off-site lines. As work was continuing to restore the other two lines, Pilgrim officials said off-site power was interrupted.
Power was again being provided by diesel generators, as it was since the storm disrupted electric transmission, which resulted in an automatic plant shutdown on Friday.
A spokesman says personnel were working on the cause of the interruption.
