PARIS, Sept 13 (Reuters) - French power utility EDF (EDF.PA) expects its 2024 nuclear output to reach between 315 and 345 terawatt-hours (TWh), the company said in an online note.

This would be up from the 280-300 TWh the company projects for 2022 and the 300-330 TWh forecast for 2023.

Both 2022 and 2023 nuclear output forecasts have been revised down several times this year.

Current production is at a much reduced 48% of available capacity, with France's nuclear output this year at its lowest in 30 years.
