Hungarian nuclear power plant shuts down one block

The Paks NPP, commissioned in 1982, is the first and only operating nuclear power station in the country, providing up to 40 percent of the nation's electricity.

According to an official statement, one of the four reactors at Hungary's Paks nuclear power plant (NPP) has been shut down by an automatic defence system.

A similar incident occurred in 2016 when the defence mechanism shut down reactor 1 due to an equipment malfunction, but there was no threat, so it was brought back to full capacity the next day.
