    Brazil's Eletronuclear woes may lead to supply interruption -paper

    Facing a severe financial crisis, Brazil's state-run nuclear power concern Eletrobras Termonuclear SA may halt operations at two power plants in Rio de Janeiro, newspaper O Estado de São Paulo reported on Tuesday, citing a letter from the firm's acting chief executive. In the letter to power sector regulator Aneel last week, Leonam dos Santos Guimarães described the situation as "grave" and warned the company's Angra 1 and Angra 2 nuclear plants may interrupt power production by 2019 if nothing is done to solve the problem. Eletronuclear, owned by Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA , is highly indebted and in default on supplier bills, including providers of uranium used as fuel to generate electricity, O Estado reported.
