Nuclear build to start

The construction of a nuclear power plant in Flamanville, northwest France, is expected to begin late next year, following the award of three major contracts on 1 September.

French companies, Bouygues, Alstom and Areva have secured contracts on the project with a combined value of US $1.9 billion (EUR1.4 billion).

The cost of building the reactor is expected to reach $4.24 billion over six years.

Eléctricité de France is developing the plant, which is expected to start production in 2012.
