French utility EDF will check auxiliary cooling circuits, or RRAs, at its 56 domestic reactors, after faults found

French utility EDF will check auxiliary cooling circuits, or RRAs, at its 56 domestic reactors, it confirmed on Tuesday. “We will gradually look at other circuits including the RRA circuit. The [French nuclear safety authority] ASN is being regularly informed of the results of the checks and
expert assessments,” a spokesman for the state-owned firm told Montel.

The comments came in the wake of a Montel report on Monday that EDF had uncovered potential issues with the RRAs, which are used for depressurising the cooling water in the primary circuit of a reactor in the event of an emergency shutdown of the unit. The spokesman declined to say why the utility was checking other circuits, as well as the RRAs.
