Palisades nuclear plant restarts after shutdown

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:16 AM

Operators of the southwestern Michigan plant said it returned to service and reconnected to the electric grid late Thursday night. Both of the plant’s feed water pumps automatically shut down Wednesday afternoon.

New Orleans-based Entergy Corp. owns the plant, which is in Van Buren County’s Covert Township.

Palisades has had several recent operating problems — with two shutdowns in September, and one each in August and January.
