The southeastern Pennsylvania nuclear reactor that unexpectedly shut down Monday night was returned to full power Friday, owner Exelon Corp. announced.
Repairs were made to a valve that closed automatically on one of the Limerick Generating Station Unit 1 reactor’s main steam lines, according to a news release from the company.
The valve closed due to a broken fitting, Exelon spokeswoman Dana Melia had said. The Unit 2 reactor at Limerick, in Montgomery County about 30 miles south of Allentown, was unaffected by Monday’s incident.
