EDF Energy extends outage at Britain's Hunterston B-8 nuclear reactor

LONDON, July 18 (Reuters) - EDF Energy, the British arm of French utility EDF, has extended an outage at its Hunterston B-8 reactor to Aug. 5, it said on its website.

The 480-megawatt reactor in Scotland was previously scheduled to come back online on July 22. It has been offline since last October after routine inspections found cracks in its graphite core and the restart has been delayed several times since.
