Nuclear plant maintenance continues after shutting down one reactor

November 7, 2012

Officials at the Comanche Peak nuclear power plant south of Granbury are continuing maintenance to resolve an issue that prompted plant operators to manually shut down one of its two reactors early Friday morning.

The incident occurred at 1:42 a.m. Friday “following high temperature indications on a reactor coolant pump motor bearing,” according to Corporate Communications Manager Ashley Barrie of Dallas-based Luminant Generation Co., which operates the plant.
