According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, there is “absolutely no risk” to public health.
Operators of the Palisades Nuclear Power Plant in southwestern Michigan say they removed it from service because of a water leak.
A special federal inspection is planned of DTE Energy’s Fermi 2 nuclear power plant this year because the Monroe-area facility’s reactor was shut down too many times in 2012, officials said.
An environmental coalition is making more arguments against a proposed addition to DTE Energy Co.’s Fermi nuclear plant in southeastern Michigan.
A federal report is criticizing DTE Energy Co. for what it says are maintenance failures leading up to the June breakdown of a cooling water pump at the Fermi 2 nuclear power plant.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has found that environmental concerns are not significant enough to halt the construction of a proposed new reactor at the Fermi plant in Monroe County.
DTE Energy says it may take months before the Fermi 2 nuclear power plant returns to full power because of substantial repairs needed on a reactor water pump.
DTE Energy has shut down its Fermi 2 nuclear power plant near Monroe because of an excess of hydrogen gas in a cooling system for the main electrical generator.
The Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant returned to service Friday when operators synchronized the plant to DTE Energy’s electrical system, following a safe, successful refueling and maintenance outage that began March 26.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission says a weeklong shutdown in September at Palisades nuclear power plant in southwestern Michigan was caused by workers and supervisors not following proper safety procedures.
