Nuclear power problems

The new nuclear reactor at Flamanville has run into yet more problems as they have to redo at least 8 welds which are encased in the concrete protection walls. Having got at them it takes 8 weeks to repair each one and prove the work.
The problem has been getting the specialist welders together to do the job as they are rare birds, so it seems.
Given the rise of alternative technologies for producing electricity one wonders if the whole project is not a great big white elephant. Certainly, it will be the last ever built.
Too thick for a PhD!
