EDF to close French coal-fired power plant by 2021

Electricité de France SA will terminate operations at its 580-MW Havre coal power plant in Le Havre, France, by April 1, 2021, Reuters reported Jan. 10, citing the country's energy ministry.

The closing of the facility is part of France's plan to phase out the country's remaining 3,000 MW of coal-fired generation by 2022.

The remaining facilities are two generators at the EDF-owned Cordemais coal power plant with 580-MW capacity each, as well as unit 6 at the Emile Huchet power plant and unit 5 at Provence.

Emile Huchet and Provence are owned by Central European energy group Energetický a prumyslový holding a.s.

EDF is planning to convert the two generators at Cordemais facility to burn biomass fuel.
