EDF, which operates France’s 58 nuclear reactors, said that production for the month of September rose 10.6 percent to 29.3 TWh compared with September 2016, when several reactors were halted for safety inspections ordered by French regulator.

EDF has lowered its 2017 nuclear generation target to 385-392 TWh, from a previous target of 390-400 TWh.
