    IAEA warns of low water level in cooling tank at Zaporozhie power plant

    June 6, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Vienna - The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, assured that the water level in the cooling tank of the Zaporozhie nuclear power plant systems had decreased in a worrying way.

      "The dam at Novaya Kakhovka received serious damage, which there was an alarming decrease in the water level in the tank, from where the water came to cool the plant," the official said on his Twitter account.

      Earlier it was reported that at least three sections of the dam collapsed under the water pressure, after shells of Ukrainian troops destroyed the gate beams at the top of the facility. As a result, an uncontrolled discharge of water began, which resulted in the flooding of the town of Novaya Kakhovka.

      "My trip to the Zaporozhie nuclear power plant was planned for next week, and now it is absolutely necessary. I will travel," Grossi stated on his account.

      Russian nuclear company Rosatom reported that at the moment there are no threats to the safety of the Zaporozhie nuclear power plant due to the destruction of the upper part of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, and the situation is under the control of the plant staff .

      Rosaton specified that five units of the nuclear power plant are stopped "cold", and one is stopped "hot". The water level in the cooling pond has not changed and is at 16.67 meters, the authors of the report noted.

      The IAEA reported that the agency's experts at the Zaporozhie nuclear power plant are monitoring the situation, but at the moment there is no threat to safety at the plant.
