RWE, Vattenfall must shut down Biblis, Brunsbuettel

FRANKFURT, March 26 (Reuters) - Germany’s Federal Administrative Court has ruled that utilities RWE (RWEG.DE) and Vattenfall [VATN.UL] may not extend the lifespan of their Biblis A and Brunsbuettel nuclear power plants as they had sought.

The utilities had planned to transfer allowances to produce power at the Muelheim-Kaerlich nuclear power plant to Biblis A and Brunsbuettel and thus operate the power plants longer than initially planned.

The court said on Thursday it had confirmed previous rulings that such a move was not allowed under the law that governs Germany’s exit from nuclear power. (Reporting by Peter Dinkloh)
