France rules out further complete closure of nuclear power plant after Fessenheim


PARIS, June 26 (Reuters) – The French government has ruled out any further complete shutdown of nuclear sites after the planned shutdown of two reactors at its Fessenheim plant in eastern France, ministry sources said on Friday. Energy.EDF, a state-controlled public company, plans to shut down the second nuclear reactor at the Fessenheim plant early next week, as the French government intends to reduce the share of atomic energy in its electricity mix to 50 % by 2035, compared to more than 71% currently.

The first Fessenheim reactor stopped production at the end of February.
