E.ON, asked about Isar 2, says has supplied information in line with law

·1-min read

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German utility E.ON has supplied relevant information about necessary repairs at its Bavarian Isar 2 nuclear reactor in line with nuclear safety laws, a spokesperson for the company said on Monday.

Germany's environment ministry had said a week-long repair was needed in October after E.ON had informed it about a leak at the site, which has not compromised security but could upset the government's winter energy plan.

E.ON added it was confident that the necessary framework to allow Isar 2 to contribute to German power supply security beyond the current Dec. 31, 2022 closure date could be found.
