Kozloduy N-plant Switches Off 1,000 MW Unit over Technical Fault

Bulgaria’s sole nuclear power plant Kozloduy switched off its 1,000 MW (MW) Unit Six at 0630 CET on Monday due to a problem with a drainage pipe of the unit’s turbine, the plant said.
The failure occurred in the conventional, non-nuclear part of the unit, and has caused no change in the radiation situation on the site of the plant.
Two days earlier the plant said it had completed the planned annual repairs of the unit. "Within the overhaul which started on September 21 all planned repair operations and checks of the equipment were conducted and the reactor was refilled with fresh fuel," the plant said on Saturday.
Kozloduy's other 1,000 MW reactor, Unit Five, is operating at full capacity.
