August 9 (SeeNews) - Nuclearelectrica, the operator of Romania's sole nuclear power plant (NPP) Cernavoda, said that one of the plant's two units automatically disconnected from the grid due to a malfunction in the non-nuclear part of the unit.
The disconnection that took place in the afternoon of August 8 had no impact on the nuclear part of the plant, Nuclearelectrica said in a filing with the Bucharest Stock Exchange on Tuesday.
Remedial work will be done in the coming days according to the Cernavoda NPP's specific procedures for such situations.
"The automatic shutdown of Unit 1 as well as the remedial works have no impact on the nuclear safety of the reactor, the unit staff, the population and the environment," Nuclearelectrica added.
The company will issue a press statement once Unit 1 of the Cernavoda NPP will be reconnected to the grid.
The Cernavoda plant, located in southeastern Romania, is operating two reactors of 700 megawatts 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 shares traded 0.44% lower at 45 lei ($9.98/9.09 euro) by 1000 CET on August 9 on the Bucharest bourse.
