"An [automatic] reactor SCRAM occurred at 0433 CDT, on 05/25/2020, from 66 percent core thermal power. The cause of the SCRAM was due to a Main Turbine Trip. The cause of the Turbine Trip is under investigation.

"All systems responded as designed. No loss of offsite power or [Emergency Safety Feature] (ESF) power occurred. No [Emergency Core Cooling System] (ECCS) or Emergency Diesel Generator initiations occurred. Main Steam Isolation valves remained open and no radioactive release occurred due to this event. The plant is stable in mode 3. This event is being reported under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(2)(iv)(B), as any event or condition that results in actuation of the Reactor Protection System (RPS), when the reactor is critical.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified."
