Heysham 1-1 nuclear reactor offline for maintenance

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s 610-megawatt Heysham 1-1 nuclear plant has gone into a planned maintenance period on Tuesday after being taken offline last week due to an electrical fault, operator EDF said in a statement.

“On August 27 Heysham 1 unit 1 started its planned statutory outage,” a company spokesman said.

The 610-megawatt Heysham 1-2 reactor also remains offline following an electrical fault affecting gas turbines at the complex on Friday, EDF said.
