LVOV, March 30 (Itar-Tass) - Unit three at the Rovno nuclear power station in western Ukraine was brought to a halt on Thursday over a fault in the turbine plant and steam leakage, the duty person told Itar-Tass. That is a minor failure, and there is no damage to the personnel or the environment, he said. Staffers are making repairs themselves.

According to the duty person, unit three is expected to be re- launched on Friday.

Unit four of the Zaporozhye nuclear power station, which was stopped on March 29, will also be launched on Friday.
