Doosan Power Systems is in discussions with EDF (Euronext: EDF) over a contract to maintain the French company’s nuclear power fleet in the UK.

The South Korean media are reporting the negotiations are under way as EDF seeks a partner to service its portfolio in Britain. A spokesperson for Doosan told Reuters, “the deal is under discussion but nothing has been finalised.”
