The life of East Lothian nuclear power station Torness is to be extended by French operator EDF energy, the firm announced in a statement on the stock market. The plant was due for decommissioning in 2023, but that will now be extended to at least 2030, according to the energy company. Torness provides around a quarter of Scotland’s electricity, according to operators. Hunterston B nuclear power station in North Ayrshire is due to close in 2023.
