Heatwave closes nuclear power plant
By:
ThinkSpain , Monday, July 24, 2006

According to a statement issued this morning by the Nuclenor company that owns the nuclear power plant on the banks of the Ebro river near the village of Santa María de Garoña (Burgos), it was closed down and disconnected from the national grid at 1.32am last night as a precautionary measure.

The reason given for the shutdown, that was achieved without incident and according to technical guidelines, is the rise in temperature of the waters of river Ebro, that are used in the plant's refrigeration system, as levels have dropped owing to the recent hot weather.

Until the plant is started up again and re-connected to the national electricity grid, routine maintenance work will be carried out.
