March 11 U.S. nuclear regulators on Monday rejected an appeal by UniStar, a unit of French power company Electricite de France (EDF), against a decision barring it from building a third reactor at the Calvert Cliffs nuclear plant in Maryland.

The NRC, however, said UniStar could revise its application to build the reactor if the company finds a U.S. partner.
