French energy firm EDF wants the Swiss and Germans to kick in money if politics force the early closure of the Fessenheim nuclear power plant in Alsace.
EDF chief Henri Proglio said that at a company general meeting in Paris, though he didn’t specify what payments he would want to split.
Swiss energy firms Alpiq, Axpo and BKW each own a 5 percent stake in Fessenheim, and a German firm EnBW owns about 18 percent.
Fessenheim is due for a 15 million euros per reactor renovation, though new French President Francois Hollande has promised to close the site by 2017.
