EDF restarts nuclear plants

EDF Energy, the UK's biggest atomic power producer, yesterday resumed output from two nuclear plants, bringing 1,200 megawatts of potential generation capacity back on to the grid. EDF said its 600MW Sizewell B1 reactor returned to service several days ahead of schedule on Sunday after shutting down on 2 March. The company's 620MW Hartlepool 1 reactor also resumed outputting power.
