Taiwan nuclear plant shuts down after record rain engulfs the island videos –

Taipower said the 345-kV tower fell at 10:31 local time, resulting in the automatic shutdown of the New Taipei’s Jinshan Nuclear Power Plant reactor No. 2 – a safety mechanism activated whenever a reactor cannot transmit power, The China Post reported. Local media sources indicated that neither the reactor nor the generator was damaged during the incident. However, for safety reasons, the restarted reactor will remain running at 75% capacity – the level at which it was running when the shutdown occurred – until it runs out of fuel, which is estimated to be June 10 or 11.
