Czech Nuclear Plants to Go Back Online

TEMELIN, Czech Republic, Dec. 13 (UPI) — A Czech Republic nuclear power plant taken offline for tests and repairs should be back in operation and providing electricity Monday, officials say.

The Temelin plant has two units, both of which were disconnected from the national power grid Saturday, though technicians had planned to have only one off the grid at a time, the Czech news agency CTK reported.

While one unit was being tested, the second had to be taken offline earlier than expected for planned repairs, CTK said.

“The planned shutdown of the Unit 2 that was to end at midnight to Sunday has been complicated a little bit. The generation block will be reconnected almost a day later,” a Temelin spokesman said.
