EDF take over the technical and financial responsibility of its nuclear power plant dismantling at the end of their operation. Its priority is to guarantee the environment safety and protection neat to a power plant in dismantling with the same rigour and transparency that the company demonstrate in the operation of its 58 nuclear reactors
The first Chooz A Pressurized Water reactor was stopped in 1991 and is now being dismantled.
The power plant dismantling process made the subject of a public investigation in 2006 in order to obtain the authorization decree for the complete installations decommissioning.
The 29th of September 2007, the NSA college of Commissioners (Nuclear Safety Authority) gave a favourable opinion on the Chooz A power plant complete decommissioning.
The end of the dismantling operations is foreseen in 2025.
Once rehabilitated and decommissioned, the site will continue to be the EDF property and remain at industrial vocation.
In 2015, the French nuclear fleet produced 416,8 billion KWh. Chooz Nuclear Power Plant, however, produced 20,8 billion of KWh, which represents almost 5% of the French Nuclear production.
