One of the reactors had to be stopped.
At a nuclear power plant Project in southern Belgium due to Electromechanical failure has occurred emergency stop of the second reactor.
“The automatic shutdown of the reactor occurred as a result of a failure in the activation of high voltage transmission lines. The failure took place outside the nuclear zone of the station and poses no threat to people or the environment,” said the company.
It is noted that the power outages in the southern part of Belgium will not happen, despite increased consumption in connection with an abnormal heat and widespread air conditioning.
“The company has reserves to compensate for the generation of electricity, in particular solar and gas generators”, — assured Electrabel.
