Corrective actions will be undertaken in the upcoming days following the specific procedures outlined for such situations at the Cernavoda NPP.Nuclearelectrica added that both the automatic shutdown of Unit 1 and the subsequent remedial work do not pose any risk to the nuclear safety of the reactor, the unit’s personnel, the local population, or the environment.
