Energy Northwest Nuclear Plant Shuts Down

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, Wash-- Energy Northwest's nuclear power plant near the Hanford Site shut down Monday.

Monitoring equipment found problems with the main turbine and automatically turned the power off. The plant will remain shut down while crews try to fix the turbine control system, which is expected to take about two days.

The last time the nuclear power plant shut down was in November to repair leaky steam valves.
