Entergy Returns Indian Point 3 Nuclear Power Plant to Service

Buchanan, N.Y. – Control room operators returned the Indian Point unit 3 nuclear power plant to service Thursday morning after safely shutting down the plant on Monday to repair a valve that controls the flow of water into one of four steam generators.

Unit 3 had been online for 120 continuous days prior to the shutdown.

Unit 2 was unaffected by the shutdown and continues to operate at full power.

Indian Point Energy Center, in Buchanan, N.Y., is home to two operating nuclear power plants, unit 2 and unit 3, which generate approximately 2000 megawatts of electricity for homes, businesses and public facilities in New York City and Westchester County.
