Societatea Naţională Nuclearelectrica SA announces the re-connection to the National Power Grid of the Cernavodă NPP’s Unit 2, as scheduled, during the night between 3 and 4 July 2013, after having overhauled the pinhole that led to the minor heavy water leakage in the reactor building.

All the systems have operated in compliance with the design, and Unit 2 is going through the power increasing process till the reactor reaches full power.
