JACKSON — Entergy Nuclear reports its Indian Point Energy Center and James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant in New York, Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Massachusetts and Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant in Vermont have all safely weathered Hurricane Sandy.
Indian Point 2, FitzPatrick and Pilgrim remained at full power while Vermont Yankee reduced power to 88 percent at the request of ISO New England to help maintain grid stability. Indian Point 3 automatically shut down at 10:41 p.m. yesterday as a result of an electrical grid disturbance.
Jackson-based Entergy Nuclear reports its plants began preparations for the storm last week, coordinating activities with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Federal Emergency Management Agency, independent system operators and various state and local government officials.
