NC nuclear plant in path of Hurricane Isaias loses power to unit, activates safety system via Fox Business

Tropical Storm Isaias made landfall as a hurricane on North Carolina’s coast

By Evie Fordham

A North Carolina nuclear power plant in the path of Tropical Storm Isaias reported an “unusual event due to a loss of offsite power” that led its safety systems to be activated early Tuesday morning.

The Brunswick plant, on North Carolina’s coast, was in the process of shutting down Unit 1 when the loss of offsite power triggered the safety systems, according to an update posted on the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission website.

The issue only applied to Brunswick’s Unit 1. Unit 2 was not affected, according to the update from Duke Energy personnel.
