Europe to Stress Test Nuclear Power Stations

The EU’s Commissioner for Energy, Günther Oettinger, has announced that the union will conduct a series of stress tests upon its nuclear power stations later in the year. He described the tests as “extraordinary” and said they would include the impact of earthquakes and high water.

The tests will also be conducted on the nuclear power stations of neighbouring non-EU countries, including Switzerland, Turkey and Russia.
