Some European reactors may have to close following stress tests

The Montreal Gazette carried an article yesterday by Karolin Schaps of Reuters:

Nuclear reactors older than 40 years may need to shut down following Europe-wide stress tests as additional safety costs will make them too expensive to run, the head of the OECD’s Nuclear Energy Agency told Reuters on Wednesday.

“I think there will be a few reactors where decisions are really challenged. In the end it will be a strictly economic decision,” said Ron Cameron in an interview.
