LONDON (Reuters) - British Energy’s Hartlepool 2 reactor has been taken offline for refuelling, a spokeswoman said on Monday.
The 605 megawatt power generator had come out of service at 9:10 a.m., British Energy confirmed.
She would not comment on the length of the refuelling period, but it typically takes several days for refuelling.
The 555 megawatt Dungeness 21 nuclear reactor in the southeast has also been off for maintenance since July 10.
