A Van Buren County power plant is offline due to planned maintenance.

Palisades Nuclear Power Plant was removed from service around 11:30 p.m. Friday.

Officials say the outage is because of maintenance that is being done to replace a primary coolant pump seal.

The replacement will help with energy production at the plant during the summer months.

Officials say the outage will be "brief", but there is no word yet on when the plant will be back up and running.
