August 29 (SeeNews) - Nuclearelectrica [BSE:SNN], the operator of Romania's sole nuclear power plant Cernavoda said that it had to shut down one of its two 700 MW units on August 26 for repair works.
The controlled shutdown and the completion of the repair works have no impact on personnel, nuclear safety, environment and population, Nuclearelectrica said in a statement on Friday.
The controlled shutdown of Unit 1 is necessary in order to carry out repair works of the filtration system of the aspiration pool, in the classical part of the power plant, it added.
On August 25, Nuclearelectrica announced that Unit 1 has returned to nominal power following reduction needed to modify parameters of the turbine condenser due to accumulation of impurities in the water, such as algae and mud.
The Cernavoda NPP, located in southeastern Romania, has two reactors of 700 megawatts each. Its output cover around a fifth of the country's electricity needs.
Blue-chip Nuclearelectrica's shares traded 0.31% higher at 45.35 lei ($9.30/ 9.31 euro) on the Bucharest Stock Exchange as at 1027 CET on Monday.
