The Temelin nuclear power station was disconnected from the country's national electricity grid on Monday morning, less than 24 hours just after receiving permission to go back on-line. Operators decreased output at Temelin's first reactor to two percent and stopped the turbine, after several hundred litres of oil leaked from the secondary circuit. Temelin is undergoing a month-long stage of testing with output up to 55 percent. However, it has had to be stopped repeatedly due to unexpected technical problems. Anti-nuclear activists in neighbouring Austria say the problems are proof Temelin is unsafe. The owner of Temelin, ste-run power utility CEZ, says the problems are normal in any testing period.
