North Anna Nuclear Reactor Back in Service

Oct. 15, 2013

A nuclear reactor at Dominion Virginia Power's North Anna power station is back in service after an unplanned shutdown.

Dominion was restarting Unit 1 following a scheduled refueling and maintenance outage when the reactor automatically shut down last week.

Officials blamed the problem on a relay switch that hadn't been returned to its proper configuration.

Unit 1 was returned to service over the weekend.
