After having stressed failures of plant Areva le Creusot (Saône-et-Loire), French nuclear safety Authority (ASN) has announced, on Wednesday 13 September, have placed power plant of Belleville-sur-Loire (Cher) " under enhanced surveillance ". A procedure very rarely triggered in 2000 to site of Dampierre (Loiret) and in 2013-2015 to that of Chinon (Indre-et-Loire).

Reason : " degradation of safety level recorded since 2016 ". The plant, which has two reactors of 1 300 megawatts (MW) placed in service in 1988-1989, will refore be subject to additional controls engineers and technicians of DSC system.

The ASN has noted "an increase in number of significant events" and "deficiencies" of group of electricity in monitoring and maintenance of facilities, without going as far as to claim judgment. It is, in fact, an accumulation of events ranked 1 on international scale of risks INES, which ranges from 0 to 7.

The ASN is today engaged in a considerable amount of work with reduced means : to allow or deny extension of duration of operation of 58 reactors beyond 30 years, and often 40 years. Only permanent shutdown of Fessenheim (Haut-Rhin) is scheduled for 2019, when EPR reactor of Flamanville (Manche) will enter in commercial service.

in The coming years, ASN will rule on safety of each reactor at end of in-depth visits. As government confirmed target of reducing 75 % to 50 % share of electricity from nuclear power by 2025, which will require closure of several nuclear power plants.
