At the Zaporizhzhia NPP, an incident occurred involving water leakage from the primary to the secondary circuit

At the 4th power unit of the temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, an incident occurred involving the leakage of water from the primary to the secondary circuit.

This was reported by Energoatom.

It is noted that the occupiers brought the power unit into a hot shutdown state in violation of licensing conditions and the requirements of Energoatom, causing the leakage. However, there were no radiological emissions into the environment.

The company explained that this happened due to the integrity breach of the third steam generator located within the unit's hermetic shell. Consequently, the occupying leadership began transitioning the 4th power unit of the nuclear plant into a cold shutdown state.

Energoatom warned that over the next three days, the occupiers will transfer the 6th power unit of the nuclear plant into a hot shutdown and once again violate the licensing conditions and requirements of Energoatom.

All those involved in the incident, who are executing the criminal orders of Rosatom and causing all power units of the nuclear plant to reach a critical state, have been promised to be identified and held accountable once the plant is de-occupied.

Background. Mind previously reported that last night, the Zaporizhzhia NPP had lost power from the main 750 kV transmission line. The plant's power was switched to a backup 330 kV line, and disconnecting it risks a blackout.
