The energy supplier EDF has discovered a radioactive leak in the French nuclear power plant Civaux. Accordingly, the leak was in the primary cooling circuit and was noticed on Wednesday. EDF stated that there was no danger. Measurements taken outside the facility, located in south-west France, would not have detected any radioactivity. At the request of the nuclear regulator ASN, ED is now to submit a report on the leak.

The affected reactor Civaux 1, which has been undergoing scheduled maintenance since August 2021 and is therefore switched off, was actually supposed to be started up again on January 8th. However, the leak could possibly delay commissioning, an insider told Reuters news agency. The energy supplier EDF, on the other hand, announced that no statements can be made about the restart of the reactor at the present time. Civaux 1, along with other reactors, is to be ramped up in time to supply France with sufficient electricity in the winter.
