The controversial Temelin nuclear power station in South Bohemia could be restarted on Friday, one month after the plant was shut down due to technical problems during the testing phase. Temelin's operators, the state-owned energy company CEZ, say they expect to receive permission to relaunch Temelin's first reactor later today. The plant was shut down in mid-January after vibrations were discovered in one of the cooling system's turbines. Austrian environmentalists say the technical problems at the plant are proof that it is unsafe, and must be shut down. Temelin's operators say the problems are normal in any testing period.
