PARIS, Jan 20 (Reuters) – France’s nuclear safety authority ASN said on Tuesday it would carry out a total of seven re-licensing inspections in 2009 at nuclear power sites.

The ASN conducts three-month long re-licensing inspections on all of France’s 58 reactors once every 10 years, at the end of which it decides whether or not to authorize the plant to run for another 10 years.

The body will carry out its third inspection on a 900-megawatt nuclear reactor 1 at Tricastin (Southeast France) in the spring and on the 900-MW Fessenheim 1 reactor (eastern France) in the autumn, state-owned utility EDF (EDF.PA) said
