Kola Nuclear Power Plant at half capacity

The second reactor was shut down for maintenance till the beginning of August, reports Murmansk daily Polyarna Pravda.

The first reactor currently operates at 50%, while the forth runs at 100%. The reason for less than 50% output from Kola NPP is explained by the fact that energy consumption is reduced in the summer time.

Kola Nuclear Power Plant operates on four VVER-440 reactors.
