CNE Cernavoda Unit 2 to be restarted in the night of March 4
According to a company release, the power station specialists informed that the causes that led to the failure of the primary drain in the reactor building were determined, which implicitly led to the stop of Unit 2 and repair solutions were established. The malfunction is under repair by replacing the portion of the pipe with minor cracks.
That not led to a nuclear incident and no radioactive emissions were found in the environment, nor the staff contamination, the release also says.
Nuclear Power Station in Cernavoda (south-east) Unit 2 was stopped on Sunday due to primary agent leakage. It was detected inside the protection building of the reactor, triggering the controlled stoppage of Unit 2. In May 2008, CNE Cernavoda operations were halted for 30 days for the planned technical revision.
