EDF Starts Fessenheim-2 Reactor: Current French Outages

Aug. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Electricite de France SA started its Fessenheim-2 nuclear power plant today and its Gravelines-1 unit yesterday, French grid operator Reseau de Transport d’Electricite said on its website.

The world’s biggest nuclear power plant operator has 39 French reactors online, representing 67 percent of the country’s available nuclear capacity, RTE data show. EDF’s 58 atomic plants generate about 78 percent of France’s power.

The table below lists EDF’s nuclear units that are out of service, their generating capacity in megawatts, when they stopped and the expected return date, if known, according to RTE.
