Indian Point Energy Center’s Unit 2 nuclear reactor is back online after it was automatically shut down Wednesday.

Entergy Corp., the operators of the Buchanan plant, announced Thursday afternoon that the plant was reactivated earlier that day. No radioactivity was released and there was no effect on public or worker health and safety, Entergy said.

The shutdown occurred while technicians were testing electrical systems Wednesday morning.

Unit 3, the plant’s other nuclear reactor, stayed online during Unit 2’s shutdown and has been operating continuously for 205 days.
