Greenpeace: dangerous malfunctions are found at 28 nuclear plants

Greenpeace France discovered malfunctions at 28 nuclear reactors, including 18 EDF plants in France and one in the UKs Sizewell. Environmental affairs magazine Ecologist informs that they are operating at risk of failure because of carbon anomalies.

The review was carried out by Consultancy firm LargeAssociates after French nuclear regulators had found out flaws in a reactor vessel at the EPR reactor that is now under construction at Flamanville at the French side of the English Channel (La Manche). The key parts for the reactor were provided by the nuclear engineering group Areva.

To date, Areva NP has identified 87 irregularities concerning EDF reactors in operation, 20 affecting equipment intended for the Flamanville EPR reactor, one affecting a steam generator intended for but not yet installed in the reactor 5 of Gravelines NPP and 4 affecting transport packagings for radioactive substances, the French nuclear safety regulator said. resumes that the review may force officials to shut down planned projects that are intended to be constructed as they may potentially have the same malfunctions.
