• COVID-19 update #5

    Mon, 02 Nov, 2020


    Due to the fast spread of the corona virus, the number of readily available staff in reactor operation has decreased below the level of safe operation determined by law. Therefore we were forced to decide to delay the reactor cycles until further notice - effecting also the cycle scheduled to start this afternoon. Apologies for the short notice.
