BUCHAREST, June 10 (Reuters) - Romania's Nuclearelectrica has reconnected its first unit at Cernavoda on the river Danube to the energy grid, following a one-month planned disconnection for maintenance, it said on Tuesday.

"Unit 1 synchronising took place on 08.06.2014," Nuclearelectrica said in a statement, adding the unit's stoppage started on May 9.

The state-owned firm has two 706 megawatt reactors at Cernavoda, accounting for roughly a fifth of the country's power production, and hopes to add two more units by 2020. (Reporting by Radu Marinas; editing by Matthias Williams)
