15-07-2009

The Temelin nuclear power plant in south Bohemia said on Wednesday its second unit had been reconnected to the grid after nearly a three-month planned shutdown during which experts reconstructed the low pressure turbines and upgraded the fuel charging machine. They also took a series of technical measures to enhance the reliability of the equipment. The power plant was to raise the unit's output to 80 percent in the course of the day. The first unit is running at planned output.
