Slovenian nuclear power plant Krsko, which has been in continuous operation since the completion of its overhaul last year, was taken offline on October 5.
An increased release from the primary system inside the protective building has been detected. This release has no impact on employees, the population, or the environment and is below the values set as limits in the technical specifications.
To precisely determine the source of the release and the subsequent steps for its remediation, it is necessary to stop the power plant. The operational team will commence a controlled, gradual reduction of power.
