Entergy's River Bend-1 nuclear unit in Louisiana shuts for planned maintenance

Operators at Entergy's 992-MW River Bend-1 nuclear reactor in St Francisville, Louisiana, initiated a "planned" manual shutdown of the unit at 2 am CST (0800 GMT) Monday "to conduct fuel inspection and maintenance work," plant spokeswoman Erin Gryniak said.

Gryniak declined to estimate the duration of the shutdown or when the unit will restart and synchronize with the electricity grid, "because this is business-sensitive information."

River Bend-1 was operating at 64% of capacity on Sunday, 66% on Saturday and 100% Friday, according to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission's daily reactor status report.
