Czech Temelin nuke plant's Unit 2 off for two days

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

PRAGUE, Nov 25 (Reuters) - Czech power group CEZ said on Tuesday it had disconnected Unit 2 at its nuclear power plant Temelin from the grid in the morning due to a fault in a non-nuclear part of the unit and it would be down for two days.

Temelin has two 1,000 megawatt units. The other unit is also out of order, undergoing repair work that is expected to continue until the middle of December.

Causes for the fault at Unit 2 are being investigated, CEZ said, adding that it would use the outage period to do a regular check of the unit. Supplies from the unit should restart on Nov. 27, it said.
