Bulgaria's Kozloduy plant reconnects nuclear reactor after maintenance

SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria’s state nuclear power plant Kozloduy reconnected on Saturday its 1,000 megawatt nuclear reactor Unit 6 after a planned maintenance and refuelling, the plant said.

Kozloduy, situated at the Danube River, said in a statement that the Soviet-made reactor was reconnected to the national power grid at 0647 GMT, after a clearance by the country’s nuclear regulator. The reactor was shut on Sept. 22.

The other reactor, Unit 5, is working at full capacity, the plant said.
