According to iol.co.za, Koeberg’s Unit 2 reactor has been shut down for unplanned maintenance. According to the report:
“Due to stringent safety requirements, the shutting-down procedure, repairs and restarting procedure will take about three weeks,” Eskom said.
My favorite line from the report is
The nuclear reactor was not been affected and “will be kept in a safe and stable condition in line with the operating procedures of the station”.
Someone explain that one to me, please? Anyhow, expect three weeks of blackouts, brownouts, hideouts, strikeouts, and let’s-get-outs.
