Oyster Creek nuclear power plant automatically shuts down

The 636-MW Oyster Creek nuclear power plant automatically shut down because of a turbine trip.
 
On May 7, an automatic scram occurred from a turbine trip. The trip is currently under investigation, but workers say an electrical disturbance on the non-nuclear side of the plant may have been the cause. All backup systems responded as designed and there was no danger to the public or to workers.
