EDF confirms three nuclear reactors back in service

Edf hunterston

EDF has confirmed that three of its nuclear reactors are back in service after shutting down because of unrelated electrical issues.

Last week only 10 of its 15 reactors were in normal operation. In addition to the three with electrical problems, two were on planned maintenance outages. EDF said there was no impact on the National Grid.

Unit 2 at Hartlepool power station resynchronised to the Grid early this morning after going offline on December 17.

Unit 1 at Heysham 1 power station went back on the grid yesterday after going off on December 16.

Unit 2 at Torness power station came off the grid on December 14 and resynchronised to the Grid on 17 December
