MANUAL REACTOR TRIP DUE TO REACTOR COOLANT PUMP OIL LEAK

During power ascension following refueling outage, a decreasing oil level in the 'C' Reactor Coolant Pump was noted. When the oil level reached 69 percent, with the reactor at approximately 56 percent rated thermal power, per plant procedure, a rapid downpower was initiated which brought the plant to approximately 15 percent power and a manual reactor trip was initiated at that point. The reactor trip was uncomplicated and all plant equipment responded as expected.

The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
