  • LE COÛT DE L'EPR DE FLAMANVILLE DEVRAIT DÉPASSER 12 MILLIARDS D'EUROS

L'EPR de Flamanville est situé à côté d'une centrale nucléaire existante. Ces derniers ont été conçus pour mener des opérations de grande précision à l'intérieur des tuyauteries concernées. Confronté à un sérieux problème de plomberie sur cette grosse bouilloire nucléaire de 1 650 MW - des soudures jugées non conformes avec "le référentiel d'exclusion de rupture" (en clair la soudure ne doit pas lâcher) -, l'électricien a en effet été sommé de réparer ces malfaçons dans les règles de l'art par l'Autorité de sûreté nucléaire (ASN). Mais EDF avait déjà prévenu cet été que sa mise en service n'aurait finalement pas lieu avant fin 2022. "Un second scénario, fondé sur l'extraction et la remise à niveau dans les bâtiments auxiliaires de sauvegarde, est conservé à ce stade à titre de solution de repli", ajoute le communiqué, qui souligne également que le conseil d'administration du groupe s'est réuni le 8 octobre pour approuver "la poursuite du chantier de l'EPR de Flamanville".

La facture du chantier du réacteur nucléaire EPR de Flamanville (Manche) devrait s'alourdir de 1,5 milliard d'euros pour atteindre 12,4 milliards d'euros, à la suite des problèmes de soudures, a annoncé ce mercredi EDF dans un communiqué. En cause, des soudures défectueuses à la sortie des générateurs de vapeur. De même, le groupe réajuste "son objectif d'investissements nets totaux" à environ 15,5 milliards d'euros pour l'année prochaine, contre à peu près 15 milliards initialement.
