PARIS Nov 1 (Reuters) - French utility EDF will restart its 900 MW Bugey 4 reactor on Nov. 30 as originally scheduled, a company spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

French grid operator RTE had reported earlier on its website that EDF would postpone Bugey 4 reactor's restart to Dec. 15, but the spokeswoman said this was not correct.

"Contrary to what was reported on RTE's site, Bugey 4 restart is maintained for Nov. 30," she said.
