ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - Problems have forced the Tennessee Valley Authority to shut down the second of three reactors at its Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant in north Alabama.
The utility said Thursday the Unit 1 reactor shut down automatically early Wednesday because of a problem with fans that are used to cool the electrical connection that links the plant to the TVA power grid.
Operators had to shut down Unit 2 on Monday because of another problem with cooling water in an electric turbine.
A spokesman said the two problems are not related, and the plant's third reactor is still generating power.
