1-CEZ disconnects Temelin Unit 1 nuclear reactor

PRAGUE, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Czech utility CEZ disconnected Unit 1 of its 2,162 MW Temelin nuclear power plant from the grid due to turbine vibrations, it said on Monday. 

“The reason is higher vibrations of the turbine, very likely because of a drop in temperatures,” CEZ said on its Twitter account. “Tests are being run now, but we do not want to risk damaging parts.”
