Shutdown of the nuclear power plant! – Greenpeace reaction 28 September 2017

“this decision by l’ to edf shows once again that the operator is irresponsible by ignoring the risks that are clearly identified”, explains Yannick Rousselet, a nuclear campaign officer for Greenpeace France.

The Centrale plant is built in a seismic risk zone and below the water level of the-Mondragon Canal.
” in the event of breakage of the dam, the water of the canal would flood the plant, which could cause a major nuclear accident as confirmed by the ASN in its decision, continues Yannick Rousselet. It must be remembered that the Centrale and bogey plants are in the same situation. The same decision must therefore be imposed on EDF, in order to protect people and the environment. ‘

Greenpeace has been denouncing the dangers of the Centrale plant for more than five years, and it has also taken action in front of the plant to denounce this problem in November 2012.
