DTE Energy shuts down nuclear power plant after pumps malfunction
(2008-02-01)
(wgvu) - FRENCHTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - DTE Energy Co. has shut down
its Fermi 2 nuclear power plant after two cooling water pumps
stopped working.
DTE spokesman Scott Simons says the utility is investigating and
won't restart the plant until it figures out the cause of the
problems.
The Monroe Evening News reports that crews manually stopped the
nuclear fission process when it became clear the pumps stopped
working. The company says all safety systems worked as designed
during the shutdown at the Monroe County plant.
