French nuclear operator EDF has received clearance to restart three more reactors in the Creusot review, a spokeswoman for nuclear safety regulator ASN told S&P Global Platts Tuesday. This brings the number of reactors cleared to 49, leaving nine of the total 58 still awaiting clearance. The three reactors cleared since the last update on October 2 are Blayais-4, Gravelines-3 and Civeaux-1. The regulator launched a review into the documentation of manufacturing processes at the Creusot forge covering the entire French fleet last summer, with each reactor requiring clearance before return from annual maintenance.
