Another Problem at Farley Nuclear Plant
(2008-03-14)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Southern Company officials are trying to determine why a fire detection alarm was set off inside the diesel generator building at the Farley Nuclear Plant. Utility officials said in a statement, there was NO fire.

The Alert was issued Thursday at 4:44 p.m., but was downgraded at 6:36 p.m.

A preliminary investigation determined that exhaust fumes in the building triggered the alarm. There were no injuries.

The company said both nuclear power units are operating at 100 percent.

The Farley plant, on the Chattahoochee River near Dothan, is owned by Alabama Power and operated by Southern Nuclear Operating Company.
