Unit five at Bulgaria's sole nuclear power station has undergone an emergency shutdown.

Facility operators at the Kozloduy nuclear power station on the Danube River said the incident did not cause any radioactive leak.

It was not immediately clear what triggered the automated safety system shutdown at the 1000-megawatt VVER type unit or what repairs will be needed.

At the end of last year, hours before joining the European Union, the country shut down reactors number 3 and 4 at Kozloduy nuclear power station to meet the safety requirements of the European block.

Units 5&6 remain online and working, while units 1&2, the oldest pair, were shut down in 2003.
