A Monday-morning fire at Hungary’s Mátrai power plant is not expected to cause any decline in power production at the facility, CEO József Valaska announced.
Valaska said that the plant shut down its 100MW blocs 1 and 2 after a fire had damaged the conveyor corridor through which they receive their fuel.
Mátrai power plant will compensate for the shutdown of blocs 1 and 2 by delaying planned maintenance of the plant's 200 MW bloc 3 until a period when demand for power declines.
The Mátrai power plant CEO said that the fire caused an estimated HUF 500 million (€1.89 million) in damage to plant facilities. (MTI – Econews)
