NY Nuclear Plant Fire ExplainedF.E. Moran Special Hazard Systems was contracted to bring the fire sprinklers back online at the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant last month.  Yesterday, the plant announced the cause of the transformer fire.

The plant owner, Entergy Nuclear, announced that the cause of the fire was insulation failure.  The failure occurred on May 9, and caused the transformer to short-circuit.  This then led to a fire.

The transformer has been replaced, and the reactor is back online and in service.
