Entergy Says It Will Take Weeks for Restart of Arkansas Reactor

April 4 (Bloomberg) -- Entergy Corp. said it will take several weeks to restart a Arkansas reactor unit that was tripped offline after an accident at the facility that killed one person and injured eight.

The utility’s Arkansas Nuclear One’s Unit 2 has been shut since March 31 after a 550-ton generator component fell as it was being moved out of a turbine building at Unit 1, the New Orleans-based company said in a statement.

A new generator component that is scheduled for installation at Unit 1 is being staged at an offsite location, the company said. The accident was associated with a Unit 1 refueling outage, which began on March 24. Further evaluation will be needed to asses the damage to Unit 1, the company said.

The plant is located about 65 miles northwest of Little Rock.
