BUCHAREST Dec 23 (Reuters) - Romania's Nuclearelectrica said it will shut its nuclear reactor number two at its Cernavoda nuclear power plant and disconnect it from the national power grid on Tuesday to fix a glitch, which did not affect security at the plant.

"Power Unit No. 2 will be shut on Dec. 23 to fix a point glitch at an impulse line that serves a measuring device inside the reactor's building," it said in a statement.

It said no impact on the reactor's nuclear security, personnel or the environment was recorded and the unit would be reconnected after the glitch was fixed and tests completed. (Reporting by Radu Marinas, editing by David Evans)
