Temelin stopped again due to oil leakage

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.
