[Machine Translation] The Nuclear Safety Authority continues to raise its tone in front of EDF. By a decision taken on 27 September, it ordered the temporary shutdown of the four reactors at the Tricastin plant without delay. This is due to the inadequate strength of the Donzère-Mondragon Canal dam, which could lead to a flood in the event of a major earthquake, which could cause a nuclear fuel accident in the four reactors at the Tricastin nuclear power plant and to render particularly difficult the implementation of the means of internal and external emergency management. EDF warned the ASN on August 18 of this risk observed thanks to nuclear safety modeling. The energy company was auditioned on 26 September to bring its complementary elements. A meeting that did not dispel the doubts of the ASN, which considered that there is a short-term risk and which consequently ordered the shutdown of the reactors in the shortest time.
