EDF Energy starts defuelling phase of Dungeness B with immediate effect

June 7 (Reuters) - EDF Energy has decided to move Britain’s Dungeness B nuclear power station in Kent into the defuelling phase with immediate effect, it said on Monday.

The two reactors at the plant have been offline since 2018, due to an extended outage in which EDF has been managing a range of “unique, significant and ongoing technical challenges” not found in other British reactors, it said.

“As a result, EDF has taken a decision not to restart the plant but to move it into the defuelling stage,” it added. (Reporting by Nora Buli; editing by David Evans)
