Cause of Ginna Shutdown Determined

  • Text size: + -

Operators of the Ginna Nuclear Power Plant said they determined the cause of the automatic shutdown earlier this week.

Constellation Energy Nuclear Group staff found a leaking oil pipe in a turbine control, which caused the plant to shutdown as it is designed to do. Repairs are underway to fix the oil system.

A spokesperson for Ginna said all safety systems functioned properly.

Once the pipe is fixed, the plant will be started up again. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
