    London (dpa) - Operations at Centrica plc's Heysham 1 and Hartlepool nuclear power stations are expected to be extended until 2026, two years later than the previously forecasted closing date, the company announced on Tuesday.

    The company, a British multinational energy and services company based in Windsor, west of London, expects these extensions to add 6TWh to Centrica's electricity generation volumes between 2024 and 2026. That equates to around 70% of Centrica's total nuclear volumes in 2022.

    Chris O'Shea, Centrica Group chief executive said, "I'm delighted we've been able to work with EDF to strengthen the UK's energy security by extending the life of these critical power stations.

    "This continues our action to bolster security of supply in our core markets which includes reopening the Rough gas storage facility in the UK, sanctioning new gas-fired electricity generation capacity in Ireland, and securing increased volumes of gas and renewable power for our customers."
