Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila on Thursday instructed a monitoring service to carry out an investigation into two incidents at the Cernavoda nuclear power plant (NPP) that occurred in recent days, local media reported on Thursday.


The company stressed that the disconnection of the reactor from the energy system posed no risks to nuclear safety.

“The specialists are investigating the cause and will make the necessary repair work, in compliance with the procedures specific to the nuclear industry for such situations. There is no connection between the power reduction of Unit 2 on March 25, 2018 and the automated disconnection of the reactor today, March 29, 2018,” the press release said.

Earlier, Nuclearelectrica reported that the first Cernavoda power unit was shut down at 09:20 am on March 25, 2018. The second power unit of the nuclear power plant reduced power to 55% (about 300 MW).
