The back-up pump was supposed to be started when one of the two pumps stoped, but that one was not supplied with power either, it didn’t work. In the simple put, it was the design error and lack of checking. They are investigating the cause seemingly but I wonder if humidity or salt damage are involved..

Many parts of the coolant system were built provisionally, they didn’t have enough time on designing and checking. It has been a year, it can’t be allowed to leave some parts unchecked yet. Now again, it’s ”look after leap”.
