“Three German nuclear power stations off-grid at the same time”

IWR Online

Three of the remaining eight German nuclear power stations are currently offline, writes renewable energy industry institute IWR in an article on IWR Online. Gundremmingen C and Isar 2 were offline for about a month in the summer for routine inspections, while Brokdorf has been off the grid since February, when unusually thick oxide layers were found on fuel elements.
