French state-controlled utility and nuclear operator EDF estimates it would cost at least €46bn to build six of its Generation III EPR nuclear power reactors if the government decides to build them, French newspaper Le Monde reported.

Le Monde said the estimate was in a confidential document presented to the board of state-controlled EDF at the end of July.

EDF has not responded to the report and declined to comment when contacted by NucNet.
