A leak of coolant has prompted Slovenia to shut down the reactor at its only nuclear power plant.
The European Commission says there has been no discharge into the environment. No explosion was reported either.
A safe shutdown is in progress at the Krsko plant, which has a US-made pressurised water reactor. It supplies energy to Slovenia and Croatia.
“There is no influence on the environment and we do not expect any,” said Slovenia’s nuclear safety chief Andrej Stritar, quoted by Reuters news agency.
However, this is the same thing they said for 3 days about Chernobyl. Let’s wait and see.
