F is for Flamanville
Flamanville is a commune in the Manche department in north-western France.
Flamanville has been selected for the installation of the first French EPR reactor (which will be Flamanville's third reactor) near the two existing ones. This facility was to be operational in 2012 but at the early planning and permission stage objections were raised by the neighbouring States of Jersey and the start date has been put back to 2014.
Information about the reactor can be gleaned from the Power Technology website.
