Two Dukovany nuclear reactors shut down over pipe leak

Two reactors at the Dukovany nuclear power plant have been temporarily shut down due to a leaking water pipe, a spokesman for the plant said on Wednesday. The problem, which appeared in one of the facility’s three cooling water supply systems on Monday, has not put the plant’s security at risk, the spokesman said. It is not clear when the blocks will be reactivated. The two other reactors at the Dukovany plant remain in use.
