French EDF to ramp up nuclear power after blackouts

French electric utility company Electricite de France S.A. (EDF) stated on Friday that it is looking to increase power production in three of its nuclear reactors after a power outage left some 65,000 households in central Paris in the dark yesterday evening.

The reactors in question are undergoing repairs following corrosion problems, and EDF races to deliver on its September promise to have all of its power plants fully functional ahead of winter.

France's nuclear output reached a 30-year low in the aftermath of disrupted energy imports from Russia and a record number of failures that plagued some of the country's 56 active nuclear reactors.
