EDF Energy stops one nuclear unit, restarts three

LONDON (Reuters) - EDF Energy, the largest nuclear producer in the UK, stopped its 620-megawatt (MW) Hartlepool reactor 1 on Sunday, after restarting three other units on Saturday, the company said.

“R1 at Hartlepool Power Station came offline at 15:39 British time on Sunday,” a spokeswoman said.

EDF Energy restarted its Heysham 2-7, Hartlepool 2 and Dungeness B21 reactors on Saturday, which have a combined installed capacity of 1,830 MW.
