    Kori nuclear power plant (NPP) operator shut down on Tuesday one of the reactors over coolant problem, local media reported citing the operation.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Kori NPP has been commissioned in 1978.

    "The level of coolant had risen abnormally," the Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co. said as quoted by Yonhap news agency adding that no radiation leaks have been reported.

    The operator added that both the plant, located some 400 kilometers (248.5) southeast of Seoul, and the reactor were safe.
