Ukraine’s atomic power operator says the last reactor at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant has been shut down after the plant was reconnected to the electricity grid.
The six-reactor plant was disconnected from the grid last week after all its power lines were disconnected as a result of fighting in the area.
The plant was operating in “island mode” for several days, generating electricity for vital cooling systems from its only remaining reactor in operation.
Energoatom said that one of the power lines was restored late Saturday, allowing plant operators to shut down the last reactor.
