France’s oldest nuclear power plant to be closed by 2020

The government of France set out the conditions for the closure of the Fessenheim nuclear power plant located in northeastern France, within 1.5 km of the border with Germany and approximately 40 km from Switzerland.

The oldest Frence’s nuclear power plant will be closed with the commissioning of new power unit at the Flamanville nuclear power plant, what is not expected until 2019. According to the government document, the term of Fessenheim NPP operation is limited by 11th of April, 2020.

The Board of Directors of French energy concern EDF previously adopted a decision that the request to stop Fessenheim could only be filed six months before the commissioning of a new reactor of the Flamanville NPP. The government had to take that into account, Deutsche Welle reports.
