Unit 5 of Bulgaria's Kozloduy nuclear power plant, which suffered a technical problem last week, has been switched back on and is functioning properly.

Unit 5’s turbogenerator malfunctioned and was switched off the country's energy grid at last Sunday.

The turbogenerator was shut down due to a hydrogen leak in its cooling system.

The power plant’s employees reacted swiftly and prevented costly material damages.

The incident did not involve the reactor's nuclear facilities. No increased radiation rates were measured at the premises.
