Unit 5 of Kozloduy NPP closed due to technical failure

Unit 5 of the Kozloduy nuclear power plant was switched off the country’s power grid due to hydrogen leak in the cooling system of the 1000 megawatt turbogenerator.

The failure did not involve the nuclear facilities. No radiation rates were registered, representatives of the NPP announced. The technical problem will be resolved within several days. Unit 6 of the Kozloduy NPP is functioning normally with 81% of its full capacity.
