Unit 6 of the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant will be disconnected from the country's power grid as of 10 December for an indefinite period.

According to information of the nuclear power plant, the cause is a leak in the hear conduit of the steam generator. The problem was identified at the beginning of December. At the end of October, Unit 6 of the nuclear power station was again disconnected from the energy grid a little after it had been switched on following planned annual maintenance.

The radiation background in the work premises and on the Kozloduy NPP site remains unchanged.
