The Borssele nuclear power plant will remain shut down in the coming days for an extensive inspection. The plant shut down automatically on Saturday afternoon due to a malfunction. Operations will only restart after the inspection is done and the cause of the malfunction is found, a spokesperson for the Zeeland electricity producer EPZ said to newspaper AD.
The malfunction occurred in the reactor safety system. "The nuclear power plant is designed in such a way that it automatically goes to a safe state", the spokesperson said. The cause of the malfunction is under investigation.
