Paks nuclear power plant cuts output after malfunction
The output of the number 2 block of the Paks nuclear power plant was reduced by 50% from midnight on Tuesday after a generator oil system malfunction, MVM Paksi Atomerőmű said on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The measure does not impact the plant's other three blocks, MVM Paksi Atomerőmű said.
Each of the plant's four blocks has a nominal capacity of 500 MW. Paks accounts for about half of domestic electricity production.
