FRENCHTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - DTE Energy Co. says its Fermi 2 nuclear power plant in southeastern Michigan has been shut down for repairs.
The utility’s spokesman Stephen Tait tells the Monroe News (https://bit.ly/1ronlx6 ) that the plant went offline Tuesday for crews to repair a component in the electrical distribution system. Tait says the utility “saw indications through our monitoring program that required repairs.”
He says the shutdown was planned and other repairs will take place. The plant will be brought back online after the repairs are made and testing is complete.
The Detroit-based utility’s plant is located along Lake Erie in Monroe County’s Frenchtown Township.
