Fermi 2 nuke plant shut down

Fermi 2 Nuclear Power Plant


The Fermi 2 nuclear power plant in Monroe County has been shut down.


DTE Energy says it took the plant offline after finding an excess of hydrogen gas in a cooling center for the main electrical generator.


An increase in hydrogen gas in the water-cooled system decreases its efficiency.


The generator is on the non-nuclear side of the plant and has two separate cooling systems for its different sections. One uses water and the other hydrogen.
