Possible tampering discovered in backup generator at nuclear power plant in California (NBC News)

It was a relief to read that “there was no danger” because the reactors were in shut down mode, however, this event begs us to ask: Why take any risks?

Every step of your critical process presents its own risk for failure - even the emergency generator. An annunciator can account for abnormal conditions even within your emergency generator. A fault alarm in an emergency generator can go unnoticed if there is no proper annunciator system.

The article does not provide enough information for us to assume that the coolant found in the oil system at the San Onofre plant was or was not identified by a fault alarm. But we thought we’d take this opportunity to remind you that every alarm is important and your most critical processes should lie in the hands of reliable equipment (annunciator systems) that keep your plant operating at maximum safety levels.
