KIEV, June 11. /TASS/. The second power unit of Ukraine’s largest Zaporozhye nuclear power plant has been disconnected from the national power grid in response to a false signal of the automatic protection system, the press service of the NPP said on Thursday.
The accident occurred on Wednesday night "due to a false signal of the automatic protection of the reactor facility on pressure in the primary circuit." The unit will be disconnected until 7 p.m. (1600 GMT) on Thursday.
"There have been no remarks on the work of the major equipment of the operating units," the press service said.
The Zaporozhye NPP, the largest in Ukraine and in Europe, has six power units with a total capacity of 6,000 megawatts of electricity. Over the past years, the plant has been generating around 50% of the country’s electricity.
