Unit 5 of Bulgaria's nuclear power plant has been switched back on after a technical failure.

The reactor was off for nine days, but now there is no more risk of shortage on the local energy market, Minister Rumen Ovcharov has said Friday.

Kozloduy, which is Bulgaria's only nuclear power producer, has closed two units under pressure from the EU, and committed to shut down 3 and 4 this year.

There has been much controversy whether the closures are necessary, or the reactors might be safe enough to keep working for several more years.
