Jones said today that the plant shut down as it was designed to. Results from a preliminary investigation indicate the electrical disturbance was a result of a flashover on a lightning arrestor located on the non-nuclear side of the plant, Jones said. The flashover occurred during routine maintenance that involved pressure washing, known as ???hot washing,??? of electrical insulators near the lightning arrestor. Upon sensing the disturbance, the unit performed as designed and automatically went off line to protect equipment, Jones said. Unit 2 remains in a safe condition and will return to service after the cause is fully understood and the equipment is tested. PG&E has informed the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and appropriate local and state officials, according to Jones.rn Not confirmed information!

    Isn’t it always more interesting what they don’t talk about?

    I miss the days when “news” wasn’t just corporate or government press releases.

    That’s why I have a police scanner. Although a lot of PDs have been going to digital encryption, you can still hear enough to know what’s going on out there.
