(Reuters) - A reactor at a nuclear power plant in Georgia remained out of service on Friday after it shut down unexpectedly earlier this week
when a breaker failed. Carrie Phillips, a spokeswoman for Southern Nuclear, which operates the plant in Waynesboro, Ga., declined to say when the
nuclear unit would be back in operation. But she said the company had replaced the breaker that tripped on Wednesday, as well as related equipment,
and that plant employees were now "going through the process to look at our restart activities to return that unit to 100 percent."
What is going on here? I realize this is not in Japan, but this concurrent with the ongoing Nuclear crisis, right here in the U.S. This looks like a
script right out of the movie "China Syndrome". In the movie, two reporters happen to be a the nuclear plant doing a "feel good" story about nuclear
power when a major disaster almost happens. In the movie, the reporters, and the public, were fed the same lines as this article, a breaker
tripped...it's a maintenance issue...breaker has been replaced as well as related equipment...when all the while it turns out that the plant came
within hairs of a meltdown.
Another article says,
The company has replaced the breaker and related electronics and installed monitoring equipment to help determine the root
cause of the shutdown, Ledford said.
And you notice from the headlines from MSM, the words "still shut down", after the simple little pieces of equipment have already been replaced.
Seems like there is a WHOLE lot more to this story that the MSM is being blocked from, as usual.
Editing: Not trying to start any panic of the situation, just wondering if there is any other info on this situation than is being reported in the
MSM. It never hurts to try and probe deeper.
