Nuclear: seven questions about the industrial disaster that threatens EDF.

revising its production forecast downwards. At the origin of its
difficulties, microcracks located in a sensitive area of the reactor.
Extensive work is needed on the park.

How low will EDF’s nuclear production

it is counting on a fall in its gross operating surplus (EBITDA) linked to
the collapse of its nuclear production of 18.5 billion euros, against 14
billion estimated previously. Overview of the main questions raised by this
