EDF's Belleville 2 shuts for an unplanned outage

PARIS, March 23 (Reuters) - EDF’s 1,300-megawatt Belleville 2 nuclear reactor stopped for an unplanned outage on March 21, RTE showed on its website.

An EDF spokeswoman, who confirmed the outage, said it had been triggered by a worker knocking a cable. As a result, a valve connected to a steam generator shut. (Reporting By Axelle du Crest)
