BOSTON EDISON CO ANNOUNCES SHUT DOWN OF PILGRIM NUCLEAR POWER STATION

 PLYMOUTH, Mass., Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Edison Company (NYSE: BSE) announced that Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station was shut down at 2:33 a.m. today as a result of a spurious signal sent from radiation monitoring instrumentation on the main stream line.
 The reactor shut itself down as the normal repose to such an instrumentation transient. The reason for the transient is being investigated. Pending the outcome, the plant could be restarted as early as Sunday evening.
 The plant is in stable condition. There was no release of radiation, and no personnel injuries or contamination.
