August 10 (SeeNews) - Nuclearelectrica, the operator of Romania's sole nuclear power plant (NPP) Cernavoda, said on Thursday that it has reconnected to the grid one of the plant’s two units that was shut down due to a malfunction in its non-nuclear part.
Cernavoda NPP's Unit 1 was automatically disconnected from the grid in the afternoon of August 8 as a malfunction had affected its classical part without impact on the nuclear part, Nuclearelectrica said in a filing with the Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB).
“The automatic disconnection of Unit 1 as well as the remediation works had no impact on the nuclear safety of the reactor, the unit staff, the population and the environment,” Nuclearelectrica added.
The Cernavoda plant, located in southeastern Romania, is operating two reactors of 700 MW each, which meet roughly a fifth of the country's electricity needs. In March, Nuclearelectrica signed a memorandum of cooperation with Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation on a project for the addition of two units at the plant.
Nuclearelectrica's shares traded 0.22% lower at 44.8 lei ($9.99/ 9.06 euro) as at 1319 CET on Thursday on the Bucharest Stock Exchange.
