UPDATE 1-Entergy Mass. Pilgrim nuclear reactor shut due to power loss
Oct 15 (Reuters) - Entergy Corp's 685-megawatt Pilgrim nuclear power reactor in Massachusetts automatically shut on Monday due to the loss of one of the two 345-kilovolt power lines that provide offsite power to the plant, a spokeswoman said Tuesday. "While Pilgrim is shut down, we will take advantage of this time to perform maintenance that cannot be done while the plant is operating," Entergy spokeswoman Carol Wightman said. Regional utility NSTAR removed the second 345-kV line from service for planned maintenance last week, she said.
