    "Notification of Unusual Event" at Cooper Nuclear Stations



    Sounds like a minor nothing burger, but doesn't hurt to make note of them in this
    day and age.

    A hydrogen leak was found and is being repaired. This plant is on the Nebraska Missouri border, 3 miles SE from Brownville, near the MO river.

    Workers find hydrogen leak at Cooper Nuclear power plant in southeast Nebraska. The utility issued a 'Notice of Unusual Event' to regulators, but said there is no safety threat. https://twitter.com/theindependent/s...50916989837313

    Correct. An NOUE is the lowest level of any of the four alerts. It can be something as simple as a fire within the protected area that has burned longer than 15 minutes. At least they've updated the EAL calls now to be more realistic. Instead of a fire in a dumpster in the protected area, the NOUE call doesn't go out unless it has the possibility of affecting something in the power block.

    A hydrogen leak can be nasty if it touches off. Almost all of the large power generators use Hydrogen gas to cool the rotor/stator - so the same thing could happen at a gas fired plant and you'd never know it!
