Oil leak forces PPL nuclear reactor off line 20 Nov 2012 (PA) One of the nuclear reactors at PPL's Susquehanna plant near Berwick was shut down due to an oil leak Monday night after returning briefly to service following an 11-day outage caused by a computer problem. The leak of hydraulic oil in a system that controls the flow of steam into the turbine at Unit 2 did not affect public or employee safety [?] and was contained to the building housing the turbine, according to a PPL news release. Unit 2 shut down on Nov. 9 following a malfunction in a computer system that monitors two water systems, one that circulates cooling water within the reactor and another that runs water through the reactor to produce steam to drive the turbine.
