Bulgarian nuclear reactor shut down after technical glitch

SOFIA – Bulgarian nuclear power plant Kozloduy has shut down one of its two 1,000 megawatt units early on Wednesday after a protection system was activated at the unit’s generator, it said in a statement on its website.

The shutdown was triggered by a technical glitch in it conventional power generation equipment and not by a fault in the plant’s nuclear reactor.

The plant has alerted the country’s Nuclear Regulatory Agency over the incident and said there has been no change in the radiation levels at the plant’s site.

The reactor will be reconnected to the power grid once the technical issue is fixed. Kozloduy’s other nuclear unit was working at full capacity.
