12 nuclear power reactors in France shut down, 6 because of corrosion problems

 EDF CEO Jean-Bernard Lévy announced on Tuesday that a total of 12 nuclear
reactors were currently shut down in France, including six linked to a
corrosion problem on a safety system. “The last time I looked there were
44 in operation, so there were 12 that were not working,” he told
franceinfo in response to a question about the number of reactors in
operation in France. the French nuclear fleet.

“Of the 12 (shutdown
reactors) there were about half, I believe six, which were shut down
because we detected, very unexpectedly, a corrosion problem in certain
places where we should not not see this corrosion at all, and so we stopped
them to examine them, to fully understand what is happening, and then there
were six others who are in normal maintenance programs, “explained
