Cope denounced the 'guilty silence' of the governement towards his ecologist ally concerning the Flamanville nuclear plant, northwestern France. French energy group EDF raised recently the total cost of its long-delayed new-generation nuclear reactor at Flamanville by 2 billion euro (2.6 billion US dollar) to 8.5 billion (10.3 billion US dollar). Built by French energy giant Areva and due to be operated by EDF, it is one of four European Pressurised Reactor projects in the world, including another much-delayed one planned in Finland.
