France's Framatome says 2018 earnings to grow on cost savings

PARIS (Reuters) - French nuclear reactor builder Framatome, a unit of state-controlled utility EDF (EDF.PA), said it will have to repair about 30 defective weldings at a reactor under construction in Flamanville, France, before it can start it up.

Chief executive Bernard Fontana also told Reuters that due to cost savings, the company expected to book 2018 core earnings of around 396.62 million pounds($525.15 million) compared to about 176.27 million pounds in 2017.

Cash flow is expected to double to about 200 million euros this year while revenue is to “increase slightly” from last year’s 2.82 billion pounds.
