Report: Workers' strike causes shortfall by 3.7 GW at EDF power facilities

Power output was down 3.7 GW in France on Oct. 17 as workers went on strike against state-owned utility Electricité de France SA's proposed restructuring plan, Reuters reported.

The strike resulted in a halt in operations at four nuclear reactors, two gas-fired power plants and several hydropower stations in the country, Reuters said Oct. 17.

The affected plants include the Gravelines 2, Chinon 1 and Cattenom 2 nuclear reactors and the Martigues Ponteau 5 gas-fired generator. The shortfall may not result in any power outages but EDF has to buy power in case of a shortage of supply.

It is the second such protest against the restructuring plan by EDF's four main workers' unions. In the first, on Sept. 19, one-third of EDF's workforce went on strike, bringing power output down more than 10%.
