Electricite de France SA has set a board meeting for next week to consider moving forward with a $24 billion project to build two nuclear reactors in the U.K.

The agenda for the July 28 meeting includes a final investment decision for the construction of the reactors at Hinkley Point in southwest England, the French power producer said in a statement Thursday. EDF, the largest electricity supplier by volume in Britain, already operates 15 nuclear reactors there.
