The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Public review of EDF’s record of nuclear components made in the Le Creusot forge, which is owned by Areva.

Nuclear Street 18th Aug 2017, The national nuclear power regulator in France, Autorite de Surete
Nucleaire (ASN) has opened a public review of an order that would force
utility giant EDF to review records involving any of the components in
active nuclear power plants that were fabricated at the Le Creusot forge,
which is owned by Areva.

The forge is at the center of a controversy that
began in April 2015, when the ASN revealed that metal-weakening anomalies
created by areas of high-carbon concentrations in the steel, had been found
in two of the already installed major structural components of the pressure
vessel head at the Flamanville nuclear power plant expansion project.
