    Russia, China and S.Korea vie for Bulgarian nuclear project

    State run energy companies from Russia, China and South Korea are among seven groups interested in becoming strategic investors in Bulgaria's Belene nuclear power project, the Balkan nation's energy minister said on Tuesday. Neighbouring North Macedonia has also expressed an interest in a minority stake and long-term contracts to buy electricity from the 2,000 megawatt project on the river Danube, estimated to cost 10 billion euros ($11 billion), Temenuzhka Petkova said.

    Rolls-Royce in talks to sell French nuclear business to Framatome

    Rolls-Royce is in talks to sell its French civil nuclear business to Framatome, a company controlled by France’s EDF, in the latest move by the FTSE 100 engineer to reshape its operations. Two people close to the sales process said on Tuesday night that talks with the French company were continuing. The aero-engine group confirmed in March it had hired consultants from KPMG to review options for its international civil nuclear business, estimated by analysts to be worth up to £200m.

    UPDATE 1-Bulgaria nuclear project attracts China and S.Korea interest-sources

    SOFIA/MOSCOW, Aug 19 (Reuters) - State-run companies from China and South Korea have applied to be strategic investors in Bulgaria's revived Belene nuclear project, two industry sources familiar with the process said on Monday after Russia's Rosatom said it wanted to take part. Sofia plans to pick a strategic investor or investors by May 22 next year to install and run two Russian-made 1,000 megawatt reactors at Belene project on the river Danube. Energy Minister Temenuzhka Petkova will announce the bidders on Tuesday morning, the energy ministry said, a move preempted by Russia's state-owned Rosatom which said it had applied to take part in the project.

    Welder Shortage Threatens Boris Johnson’s U.K. Nuclear Revival

    (Bloomberg) -- Britain’s plan to revitalize its aging nuclear energy infrastructure is likely to take a hit if Brexit jeopardizes a crucial supply of welders.The skilled workers have been in short supply for years, a strain that will likely worsen as new nuclear projects are built. About 13% of Britain’s welders come from other countries in the European Economic Area, according to the Migration Advisory Committee, which keeps a list of occupations with a shortage of workers.Without those additional workers, it’s likely to become more difficult and costly to build and operate multi-billion-dollar atomic plants, which are crucial to the U.K.’s target to produce net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The stress is already apparent at Electricite de France SA’s 19.6 billion-pound ($24 billion) Hinkley Point C project, the only nuclear plant now under construction in Britain.“Hinkley requires a large number of welders,” said Peter Haslam, who retired on Friday as head of policy at the Nuclear Industry Association. “They come from Europe. We need these people to have easy access to the U.K.”Nuclear power makes up about a fifth of Britain’s electricity, and most of those plants are aging and will close in the next decade. Even with Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s call for a “nuclear renaissance,” replacing them won’t be easy. EDF’s Hinkley Point is still under construction and won’t produce any electricity for at least six years.Construction of the new units at Hinkley Point remains on schedule. While Parliament continues to debate the outcome of Brexit, EDF says it is working closely with the U.K. government on the implications to its workforce.An undertaking such as Hinkley Point requires at least 500 welders, of which about 75 need to be the highest-trained kind, said Guy Hazlehurst, workforce development director at EDF.The issue goes beyond Brexit. Many of the workers who had these skills have retired, and younger workers rarely choose to pursue the career.“The U.K. is dealing with a much wider skills shortage, in all sorts of areas,” said Andrew Cockcroft, a spokesman at EDF. “Even if Brexit wasn’t occurring, there would still be a welding shortage. It does exacerbate the problem.”To deal with the issue, EDF is spending millions to train a new crop of workers. The company is helping to organize funding for a welding education facility on top of 15 million pounds it has already spent on training in the area near Hinkley Point. For someone who is new to welding, the training can take about three years to reach the high standard necessary to work on a challenging nuclear project.That could be a tight time line. In the case of a no-deal exit later this year, EU citizens could continue to work on a three-year permit known as the European Temporary Leave to Remain. But the success of EDF’s education effort could be vital to keeping projects on time and on budget in the long term.“Regardless of the outcome of Brexit, if we are short of a certain skill-set for a certain amount of time, then the work still needs to be done,” said Andy Brown, director of operations at the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board, which helps train industrial workers. “There will be barriers and that will impact on schedule and if it impacts schedule, it will impact on costs.”READ MORE:U.K. Weighs New Financing Model to Spur Nuclear PowerU.K. Rethinks Nuclear Ambitions as Developers Drop OutEDF Plant Advances With Biggest Concrete Pour in U.K.To contact the reporter on this story: William Mathis in London at wmathis2@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Reed Landberg at landberg@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Paris Scorches in Historic Drought as Heatwave Fries Europe

    (Bloomberg) -- Paris is its driest in almost 150 years and temperatures across Europe are reaching extreme levels, scorching fields and shutting power plants.As temperatures climb across Europe, peaking on Thursday in Paris and London, the effects of extreme weather are becoming clearer. Electricite de France SA cut its nuclear output because river water is too warm to cool plants, power prices have jumped and farmers are frustrated by another bad spell for crops.This summer has already seen raging wildfires in Portugal and Spain, falling water levels on Germany’s Rhine River and irrigation restrictions in France. The extreme conditions follow last year’s drought that pummeled crops, and has heightened attention on the environment amid concern over climate change.In the east German state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Christa-Maria Wendig is worried these once-rare droughts are becoming common. She plans to give up planting rapeseed in the coming months because of the dry weather and the heatwave stunted her ripening corn crop."Our ponds are empty and the meadows withered," she said.Day-ahead electricity prices in France have jumped to a five-month high. Temperature records have already been broken in parts of the country, and Paris is forecast to hit 42 Celsius (108 Fahrenheit).Electricite de France has reduced output at two nuclear reactors at its St. Alban plant by as much as 55% in the coming days due to warm river water. The company, which produces about three-quarters of France’s power, already halted two reactors at Golfech this week, as the Garonne river is too warm for cooling the plant. EDF has said it will prepare nuclear plants to operate in more severe heatwaves in the coming decades amid a changing climate.In agriculture, the heatwave is having the biggest impact on corn fields, which are in a key growth stage. Yields will drop sharply if beneficial rains don’t arrive soon, said German grains handler Agravis Raiffeisen AG. Winter wheat and barley are already being collected and escaped most of the bad weather.Some farmers in France and Germany may harvest corn early as silage to build up their animal-feed supplies for the winter, rather than collecting the crops as grain to sell on the market, said Laurine Simon, an analyst at consultant Strategie Grains. Forage stocks are already low after last year’s drought, and Paris corn futures are up about 10% since late May.Conditions are critical for farmers unable to irrigate in France, where water restrictions began two months earlier than last year, said Cedric Benoist, who has been able to water his fields of grain and other crops south of Paris thanks to groundwater reserves. Ratings for corn in France, one of the EU’s top growers, have declined since late June.In the east German state of Brandenburg, where farmers are contending with the third straight summer of drought conditions, industry representatives have called for emergency aid from state and federal government. While the dry spell isn’t yet as severe as the one seen in 2018, farmers are still expecting smaller-than-usual grain harvests.“There’s no question of us relaxing,” said Henrik Wendorff, the head of Germany’s Brandenburg LBV farmers’ association. “The kind of bumper harvest that would have enabled us to compensate for the harsh losses of the previous year won’t be there.”(Updates with EDF output cuts from second paragraph.)\--With assistance from Rudy Ruitenberg and Jesper Starn.To contact the reporters on this story: Megan Durisin in London at mdurisin1@bloomberg.net;William Wilkes in Frankfurt at wwilkes1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lynn Thomasson at lthomasson@bloomberg.net, Nicholas Larkin, Stuart WallaceFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    EDF eyes lifespan extension with Tricastin 1 nuclear reactor upgrade

    SAINT-PAUL-TROIS-CHÂTEAUX, France, June 28 (Reuters) - F rench state-controlled utility EDF has started a 250 million euro ($284.65 million) maintenance and upgrade works at its 900 megawatt Tricastin 1 nuclear reactor that could enable it operate for another ten years. Commissioned in 1980, Tricastin 1 is the first in France's fleet of 58 reactors to undergo a fourth 10-yearly overhaul, a thorough review to ensure its integrity beyond 40 years of operation, and the ability to function for another 10 years. EDF would have to demonstrate to nuclear safety authority ASN, that it is properly managing the aging reactor, while improving safety and environmental levels, taking into account new measures place since the 2011 Fukushima accident in Japan.
