Salem Nuclear Plant Developing Repair Plan, No Restart In Plans Yet

The Wall Street Journal is quoting the owner of the Salem nuclear plant as being in the process of developing a repair plan for unit 1 and has no projection or timeline for possibly restarting the plant.

The company is “developing a repair plan” and will “make repairs as needed to return the plant to safe operation,” a spokesman said on Wednesday, offering no timeline for bringing the plant back to power.”

WSJ mentioned the damaged water pumps at the water intakes in vague terms. Platts previously quoted the plant operator as having 5 of the 6 intake water pumps damaged. The NRC previously admitted the intakes were clogged with debris from the hurricane. Salem has a long history of damage and outages related to the intake water system.
