Alarm in Bulgaria: Kozloduy nuclear reactor shut down

One of the two 1,000-megawatt reactors at the Kozloduy nuclear power plant was shut down after a generator failure.


Bulgaria's only nuclear power plant, which produces about a third of the country's electricity, shut down one of its two 1,000-megawatt reactors today after a generator fault, with no radioactive leakage, it said. station.


Today at 06:05 (local time and Greek time) the operation of unit 5 of the Kozloduy nuclear power plant was stopped "due to a malfunctioning system" of the generator "and activation of electrical protection in the non-nuclear part" of the plant.


Emergency protection was activated, but "there is no change in the state of radioactivity in the facility," the station said in a statement.


Kozloduy's second reactor, Unit 6 of the same capacity, is still in full operation, according to the station.


The date, on which Unit 5 will be able to reconnect to the electricity network, was not specified, as reported by APE-MPE. It was turned off less than a month ago for maintenance and power supply.


Kozloduy, Bulgaria's only nuclear power plant, produces about a third of the country's electricity thanks to two reactors that took over from four small reactors that closed in 2002 and 2006 to meet European Union requirements.
