Bulgaria Shuts Nuclear Reactor for Annual Maintenance

Reuters, April 23, 2018

Bulgaria’s only nuclear plant, Kozloduy, shut one of its two 1,000-megawatt reactors for planned annual maintenance early on Saturday, its state-run operator said. It said the reactor, Unit 5, will be connected back to the national electricity grid at the end of May once it is refueled and equipment repaired and upgraded. The other Soviet-made 1,000-megawatt unit at the plant on the Danube was working at full capacity, the operator said in a statement.
