ST. PETERSBURG, September 11 (Itar-Tass) - Reactor Number Three was switched off automatically at the Leningradskaya nuclear power plant on Wednesday.
After causes of the automatic halt are established and the problem is removed, the power unit will resume working at normal capacity, the plant press service said. Radiation was within natural levels at the station and its environs.
The first and second reactors are under scheduled preventive repair. The fourth reactor is working at 1040 MW capacity.
Leningradskaya belongs to the Rosenergoatom organisation. The station is located in the city of Sosnovy Bor, 80 kilometres west of St. Petersburg on the coast of the Gulf of Finland. It was the country's first nuclear plant with RBMK-1000 uranium-graphite thermal neutron nuclear reactors.
