As outlined at the June meeting of the SSG, the safety cases for both Reactors 3 and 4 have been submitted to the ONR for their assessment. The ONR is continuing its assessment into the Hunterston B return to service case, using the information EDF has provided after extensive rounds of modelling and analysis. We have been in discussions with the Graphite Team on safety case progress and have concluded that the current trading dates for Reactor 3 needs to be pushed back 10 days to the 30 August. Reactor 4 – we aim to return the unit to service on 17 September 2020, there is no change to this date at present.
