Pilgrim nuclear plant loses power again

Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth once again lost power Sunday, after having it restored for several hours following an offsite outage Friday night. Three diesel generators were providing backup power to the facility’s safety systems, said Carol Wightman, a spokeswoman for Entergy Corp., the Louisiana company that owns Pilgrim.

“There’s no worker or public safety concern,” she said. “We’re troubleshooting the cause.”
