Unforseen end of reactor cycle no 10 on Sunday 18.02.2007

On Sunday, 18.02.2007 at 4:27 am the neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM
II) has been shut down due to a failure of the moderator cooling pump. The
necessary repair of this pump causes the end of the current 10th reactor cycle
ahead of schedule. It is planed that we will restart with the regularly
scheduled 11th cycle on 29.03.2007.
