BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Europe's top court on Tuesday rejected Austria's appeal against a British subsidised nuclear plant, agreeing with EU competition regulators that government aid offered to Hinkley Point C nuclear power station was in line with EU state aid rules.
The European Commission gave the green light to the project in 2014, triggering a court challenge from Austria which has opposed nuclear power for decades, and Luxembourg.
"The Court of Justice confirms the Commission decision approving United Kingdom aid for Hinkley Point C nuclear power station," the Luxembourg-based Court said.
The case is C-594/18 P Austria v. Commission.
