CEZ said the interruption was provisionally expected to last until at least September 23. The precise duration will depend on the work to be carried out and more information would be given later, it added.

The unscheduled outage is to clean the power plant's condensation system located outside the core nuclear island. Although no power will be produced for the grid, the reactor will not be totally shut while the work was carried out, CEZ said in a statement. This means that production of power for the grid should be fast once the work is completed.

The partial shutdown would coincide with relatively lower electricity demand, CEZ said.

The Temelin-1 nuclear unit is expected to be running normally, but CEZ's 469 MW Dukovany-4 unit is currently under scheduled maintenance that is expected to last until November 11.

CEZ's six nuclear units - two at Temelin and four at Dukovany - produce baseload electricity for the domestic market and frequently provide a surplus for export.
