Tour de France: French Nuclear Facilities

Currently about 78% of the electrical power in France is generated by 58 nuclear power units. Electricite de France (EDF) operates all the French nuclear power plants. The tour of the nuclear facilities in France includes the Melox mixed­oxide fuel plant in Marcoule, large light water reactor component fabrication plant in Chalon/St. Marcel, deep underground waste disposal demonstration facility in Bure, La Hague used fuel reprocessing plant, the Flamanville nuclear power station, and the Normandy D­Day Beaches. The presentation concludes with a 5­minute video of AREVA’s Chalon/St. Marcel heavy component fabrication plant.
