Report: France delays decision on new nuclear reactors to after end of 2022

France will decide on whether or not to build six new nuclear reactors only after the start-up of Electricité de France SA's Flamanville 3 nuclear reactor, Energy Minister Elizabeth Borne announced in a Jan. 8 parliamentary hearing.

The Flamanville project is currently under construction in the north of France, and nuclear fuel will be loaded into the facility by the end of 2022, Reuters reported Jan. 9, quoting Borne.

The 1,650-MW Flamanville 3 reactor in Normandy, France, is one of three next-generation European Pressurized Reactors under construction in Europe and is considered key to Electricité de France's future nuclear strategy.

Borne also confirmed that France will proceed with the closure of 14 nuclear reactors by 2035, in accordance with the country's long-term plan, if all conditions are met.

France will step up spending on renewables as well, with the aim to reduce its reliance on nuclear energy to just 50% of the country's energy mix from the current 75%.

According to Borne, the two oldest reactors at Fessenheim will cease production in February and June, two others will be closed by the mid-2020s, and another two in 2027-2028. The rest will be retired by 2035.
