Delayed nuclear power plant maintenance jeopardizes France’s power supply

France’s power grid operator RTE sees an increased risk of supply bottlenecks in the coming winter because the maintenance of a number of nuclear power plants is dragging on.

Almost half of France’s nuclear power plants are still out of operation.

The amount of nuclear power available from mid-December to mid-February will be well below the forecast and lead to an increased risk of bottlenecks, the network operator announced on Friday in Paris.

On the one hand, strikes by power plant personnel had led to delays. In addition, the energy company EDF announced at the beginning of November that four power plants would remain offline longer than planned to check and repair corrosion problems.
