KURCHATOV (Kursk region), May 26 (Itar-Tass) - The first turbine generator of the first power unit at the Kursk nuclear power plant was disconnected due to a short circuit in order to measure the voltage transformer, the public relations centre of the Kursk nuclear power plant told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“The first turbine generator of the first power unit of the nuclear power plant was disconnected at 09:22 Moscow time on May 26 due to the activation of the automatic protection system,” the public relations centre said.
