The Saint-Avold coal-fired power plant has restarted

The Emile-Huchet coal-fired power plant in Saint-Avold (Moselle), which closed last March, started producing electricity again on Monday morning, site director Philippe Lenglart told AFP.

“The temperatures are seasonal and we have been called to produce since 9 a.m. this (Monday) morning,” he said. The Moselle power station, one of the last in France to run on coal, should have closed its doors definitively at the end of last winter, but its operation was finally extended by the government due to the energy crisis.
