France has announced the imminent closure of its oldest nuclear plant, located on the country’s border with Germany. One of the Fessenheim nuclear plant’s two 920MW pressurised water reactors will shut down within days, with the second to be taken offline by the end of June. The 30-year energy plan for the country calls for 14 of its 58 operating reactors to be shuttered by 2035 – the country at present receives more than 70% of its electricity from nuclear power.
