Electricite de France has announced that the schedule for construction of the EPR reactor at unit 3 of its Flamanville NPP has been further delayed and that its estimated cost has also increased. EDF said nuclear fuel loading is now scheduled for the first quarter of 2024 - postponed from the second half of 2023. The estimated cost of completion is now put at €13.2 billion ($14bn), up from the previous estimate of €12.7 billion. EDF said the revisions are mainly due to additional studies needed to establish a new process for the stress-relieving heat treatment of some welds that have had to be upgraded in the last two years.
