EDF Energy, owned by French group EDF, has extended outages at its Dungeness B21 and B22 nuclear reactors in Britain by about six months to complete inspections on steam pipes and corrosion repairs, it said on Friday. The 1.1 gigawatt (GW) Dungeness B site’s two reactors – unit 21 and unit 22 – have been offline for planned outages since late last summer. The company has been carrying out inspections and maintenance of pipes that carry steam to the turbine at the plant on the south coast of England. The company is also trying to complete repair work on corrosion identified during inspections of safety back-up systems.
