Paks block re-starts after malfunction corrected
Budapest (MTI) – Output of the Paks nuclear power plant’s Block 1 was back at 100 percent early in the afternoon on Friday after a control system malfunction was corrected, a plant official told MTI.
The block was automatically shut down on Thursday morning due to the malfunction.
Paks communications director Antal Kovács said the block was re-started in the morning on Friday and reached its nominal 500MW capacity at 2:20 in the afternoon.
The cause of the malfunction will be reviewed, as required by law, Gyula Fichtinger, the head of the National Atomic Energy Office (OAH), told MTI.
