KIEV, November 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Zaporozhskaya nuclear power plant shut down its Power-Generating Unit One overnight to Sunday for scheduled repairs of electrical machinery, which is due to be finished by November 27.
“Four units producing altogether 3,960 megawatts are undergoing preventive maintenance and troubleshooting,” the plant said in a press release on Sunday. “The radiation background at the working site and within the nuclear plant's health protection zone is at a level of 8-12 microroentgen per hour that does not exceed the natural radiation background in the area of the plant's location.”
On October 17, Unit Five shut down for maintenance and repairs that are due to be finished by December 15.
The Zaporozhskaya nuclear power plant is the largest in Europe. Annually, it produces as much as 40 billion kilowatts of electricity, which makes up one-fifth of Ukraine’s annual power output and a half of all the electricity generated at nuclear power plants nationwide.
