EDF postpones restart of its Bugey 4 and Gravelines 2 reactors - RTE

PARIS, Nov 3 (Reuters) - French utility EDF has postponed restarting its 900 megawatt/hour Bugey 4 and Gravelines 2 nuclear reactors to Dec. 31 from Nov. 30, French grid operator RTE said on its website on Thursday.

European power prices have hit multi-year highs in recent weeks over fears EDF could struggle to meet winter demand after the French nuclear safety watchdog demanded it carry out further tests on a dozen reactors. (Reporting by Bate Felix, editing by Sybille de La Hamaide)
