After wave of power closures, RWE will close Gundremmingen B nuclear reactor in 2017

 RWE sticks with planned date of German nuclear reactor closure FRANKFURT/DUESSELDORF Jan 27 (Reuters) – German utility RWE will stick with a closure date of 2017 for its Gundremmingen B nuclear reactor under a national exit plan, pausing after a wave of power station closures over the past two years……..

Rival E.ON is to shut its Grafenrheinfeld reactor between March and May, more than seven months before its previous closure date of end-2015.

It cited as reasons for the move unsatisfactory returns due to weak wholesale power prices and a fuel element tax which utilities are fighting in court. (Reporting by Vera Eckert, Christoph Steitz, Tom Kaeckenhoff; Editing by Maria Sheahan)
