Nuclear One Unit Running Again

Posted: Updated:

 Unit Two at Arkansas Nuclear One is back online.

 It was reconnected to the grid Sunday afternoon after almost a month offline.

 It shut down automatically after an accident back on March 31st.

A worker was killed and eight others were injured when a 550 ton piece of equipment fell as a lifting rig collapsed.

The federal Nuclear Regulatory commission conducted an investigation that revealed that there was no release of radiation and there was never a danger to the public.

 As for Unit One, crews are still working on damage evaluation, and repair estimates, and are rescheduling the unit's refueling activities.
