At the nuclear power plant “Olkiluoto” in Finland, there was an accident that forced the shutdown of one of the nuclear power plant units.
It is noted that it was a serious failure in the work of the nuclear power plant that occurred today at 12:22 minutes. This was reported by the press service of the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Agency of the Russian Federation. It is noted that the serious failure occurred today at 12:22 p.m., the press service of the Agency for Radiation and Nuclear Safety STUK reported.
“A serious malfunction occurred at the second reactor of the Olkiluoto NPP at 12:22 minutes. It was allegedly caused by an error in the reactor water purification system. The situation is now stable and the unit is in safe mode. There was no radiation release,” the agency said.
A radiation level indicator posted on the agency’s website shows the radiation situation remains normal. The authors of the press release assure that there is no threat to the population of nearby areas – there is no point in even taking tablets of iodine, which protect against small doses of radiation
