Exelon's FitzPatrick nuclear unit in New York at reduced power: US NRC

Sheehan could not provide an exact time and date when the unit's power was reduced. It was operating at 58% early Monday, at 59% Sunday, 69% Saturday and 100% Friday, according to NRC's daily reactor status reports.

"When [plant technicians] identify the leaking [fuel] rods they insert control rods to take these 'leakers' out of service," Sheehan said.

Plant spokeswoman Tammy Holden did not reply to a request for comment by press time.
