EDF's Blayais 4 nuclear reactor in unplanned outage - grid

PARIS, July 15 (Reuters) - EDF’s 900-megawatt Blayais 4 nuclear reactor stopped at 1623 GMT on Tuesday in an unplanned outage, France’s power grid RTE said on its website.

RTE said the reason for the outage was linked to a turbine and condensation problem.

It did not give further details nor provide a date for the reactor’s restart. (Reporting by Sybille de La Hamaide, editing by Laurence Frost)
