EDF delays the scheduled maintenance shutdowns of 7 French nuclear reactors.

EDF has pushed back scheduled shutdowns for next winter of seven French
reactors and plans to delay an eighth, Remit data showed on Wednesday.
These changes concern the shutdowns of the Bugey 5 (880 MW), Cattenom 2
(1,300 MW), Cruas 4 (915 MW), Golfech 2 (1,310 MW), Gravelines 1 (910 MW),
Nogent 2 (1,310 MW) reactors. ) and Paluel 1 (1,330 MW).

The delays vary
from several weeks to about a month. The company also plans to push back
for two weeks, until February 25, the scheduled shutdown of its St Alban 1
reactor (1.3 GW). EDF gave no explanation for these measures. They come
amid fears of a shortage of electricity supply in France next winter, due
to a record drop in nuclear generation. The public nuclear electric company was forced
to unexpectedly shut down several reactors for checks and repairs following
the discovery of corrosion on important safety circuits at the end of last
year.
Last month, EDF revised the dates of thirteen scheduled reactor
outages, citing corrosion-related checks and repairs.
