Bulgaria’s sole nuclear power plant (NPP) Kozloduy switched off its 1,000 MW (MW) Unit Six due to a halt in power supply to the power regulation systems of the unit’s reactor, the plant said.
The problem, which occurred on Wednesday, has caused no radiation leakage, the plant said.
On Saturday the plant said it had completed the planned annual repairs of Unit Six and reconnected it to the power grid. Two days later it shut down the unit again due to a technical problem with a drainage pipe of its turbine. Unit Six was then reconnected to the power grid on Tuesday, after the problem was fixed.
The plant operates another 1,000 MW unit, Unit Five.
