(Before It's News)

Editor’s Note: Seems like France has had non-stop attacks for the last several months, including what many have claimed was a false flag at the Louvre several days ago. Some have speculated it is to make sure France gets on the war bandwagon when it comes around… Now this.

An explosion has occurred at Flamanville Nuclear Power Plant, in France’s north-west, a local newspaper reports, adding that several people may have been injured in the blast.

The incident took place at 10:00 local time (09:00 GMT) in an engine room, Ouest-France newspaper reported.

French authorities said an explosion occurred at the EDF-operated Flamanville Nuclear Power Plant in France’s north-west, in the power plant’s machine room, but added that there is no leak of radiation. The incident occurred at 10:00 local time (09:00 GMT) in an engine room, Ouest-France newspaper reported. No injuries have been reported.

“It is a significant technical failure but it is not a nuclear accident” because the explosion occurred “outside the nuclear zone,” Olivier Marmion, director of the prefect’s office, told AFP.

The local government for the Manche region says that the blast at the Flamanville plant on France’s northwest coast has been contained and managed.

Bing Translation: “At @EDFFlamanville 1, leave fire mastered in non-nuclear areas. No victim and no consequences for safety and the environment.”

Operator EDF said that there were no injuries and that a fire led to a blast in the machine room of one of the two nuclear reactors at Flamanville. According to EDF, the fire started at 9:40am and caused an explosion in the machinery room. The fire happened in part of plant linked to reactor 1, which was disconnected from the grid, and was immediately controlled by plant’s crew;

The nuclear plant located in the Flamanville commune has two pressurized water reactors that produce 1.3 GWe (gigawatt electrical) each. The reactors were built in 1986 and 1987. A third reactor will be completed by 2018.
