Czech nuclear plant shuts down 2 reactors after cooling system leak

The Dukovany nuclear power plant in the southern Czech Republic has halted operations of two of its reactors after a pipe in the facility’s cooling system started to leak.

The Wednesday shutdown was necessary as the repair was likely to take more than three days, which is allowed under safety regulations, the plant’s operator, Czech electricity company CEZ said.

The leaking in the technical water system, which is used for cooling the important technical and safety devices at the plant, was discovered Monday, the company said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It sounds like they are NOT talking about the primary cooling loop that transfers the reactor heat to the steam generators, so there is no leak of radiation involved.
