The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

France’s Nuclear Safety Authority (NSA) under unprecedented pressure from EDF and AREVA.

Greenpeace 28th June 2017, The Nuclear Safety Authority (NSA) is under unprecedented pressure from EDF
and AREVA. This unprecedented situation shows that ASN’s decision is no longer limited to nuclear safety: it has become a political one.

What do EDF and AREVA want to do? Derogating from the most basic standards of nuclear safety so that the Flamanville EPR is put into operation despite its defective parts. Behind the authorization of this tank of the EPR, it
is indeed the survival of the French nuclear industry is at stake. Indeed, EDF and AREVA play a big part in the EPR in Flamanville.

The decisions that will be taken on this site will have far-reaching consequences for the future of the projects sold in the United Kingdom, Finland and China.

We appeal to the responsibility of Nicolas Hulot, Minister of Ecological and Solidarity Transition and in charge of nuclear safety. The ASN can no longer take a safety decision independently and cannot resist the pressure.

As for us French citizens, we do not have to pay the price of strategic and technical errors of EDF and AREVA. By putting an end to the Flamanville shipyard, Nicolas Hulot can still avoid it.
