EDF Says Dungeness B-21 Reactor Started After Unplanned Halt

June 24, 2012

Electricite de France SA, Europe’s biggest power producer, said it restarted its Dungeness B-21 reactor in southern England after an unplanned halt.

The plant resumed operating at 00:03 a.m. London time today after closing on June 22 due to a fault on the main boiler feed pump, the company said in an e-mailed statement.

The unit is one of two at the site and can generate as much as 550 megawatts when fully operational.
