Animals Have Repeatedly Shut Down Nuclear Plants
But that’s not the first time that animals have foiled nuclear plants.
On December 29, 2012, a pelican started an emergency diesel generator for the Unit 2 reactor at the Surry nuclear plant in Virginia. The pelican contacted an overheard power cable causing a short that de-energized one of the connections between the plant and its offsite electrical power grid. One of the emergency diesel generators automatically started in response to indications that electrical voltage inside the plant were decreasing. Both reactors at Surry were operating at 100 percent power at the time and continued operating throughout the power disruption.
