PARIS (Reuters) - France's EDF has detected for the second time in less than a week an anomaly on its back-up diesel generators in 8 of its 19 nuclear power plants, with no impact on operations and safety, it said on Thursday.

EDF said it had started repairs last week and that they could be done whilst reactors were in action.

The French Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) ranked the anomaly at level 1 of the international nuclear event scale that goes from zero to 7 on seven reactors and at level 2 for 1 reactor.
