EDF gets OK to restart Scottish nuclear plant where cracks found

LONDON, Aug 20 (Reuters) - EDF Energy will be allowed to restart a reactor at its Hunterston B plant in Scotland where cracks were found last year, Britain’s nuclear regulator said on Tuesday.

“ONR is satisfied that Reactor 4 is safe to operate for the next period and can be safely shut down in all foreseeable circumstances, including that of a significant seismic event,” the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) said in a statement.

EDF Energy is the British arm of France’s EDF.
