According to NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan, an electrical fault was reported in a transformer in a turbine building that spurred the scram and that the transformer is not a main transformer. The event was listed as an âunusual eventâ around 8:39 a.m., the lowest of the event ratings, Sheehan said. No one was injured in the incident and no outside help was requested, Sheehan said. Sheehan said the transformers have been known to fail from time to time and that the reactor was safely shut down. Sheehan said there are no complications at the power plant at this time and there is no danger to the public from the incident.
