Power generation from the second unit of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) has been suspended to take up maintenance work, a KKNPP official said Saturday.

The official was responding to reports that appeared in a section of media about unit II being shut due to a “valve malfunction”.
In a press release, he said the maintenance work was expected to be completed in a “couple of days.” On the status of Unit-I, he said, the scientists have undertaken refuelling work and the annual maintenance work was nearing completion.
