Serious safety flaws found in EDF’s nuclear reactors

As for For Hinkley Point C, it now appears inevitable that the Flamanville reactor will not be completed by its target date of the end of 2020, indeed it may very well never be completed at all. Under the terms of agreement for the plant’s construction accepted by the European Commission, this would render the UK government unable to extend promised credit guarantees to HPC’s financial backers.

for EDF, Areva, their shareholders and the entire French nuclear industry, the end really could be nigh.
