V.C. Summer Nuclear Station off-line for repair

(Columbia-AP) April 1, 2004 - South Carolina Electric and Gas Company has taken the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station off-line to repair a small leak in an injection pipe.

The pipe is attached to one of the reactor coolant pumps at the plant in Jenkinsville in Fairfield County. The leak was detected by monitoring equipment, which led to a controlled shutdown.

The outage is expected to last less than two weeks.

SCE&G says it can produce enough power with its existing systems.
