Romania’s Cernavoda NPP Unit 2 automatically disconnects from grid


Nuclearelectrica, the operator of Romania‘s sole nuclear power plant (NPP) Cernavoda said on Thursday that one of the plant’s 700 MW units automatically disconnected from the national electricity grid, according to See News.

“The automatic disconnection of Unit 2 was on Wednesday morning and subsequent remediation works have no impact on the nuclear safety of the reactor, personnel, population and environment,” said Nuclearelectrica in a statement filed with the Bucharest Stock Exchange

“The disconnection followed the triggering of switchers delivering energy into the national energy system,” added Nuclearelectrica.

Cernavoda NPP specialists are currently investigating the cause for the triggering of the switchers.
