Brazil contractors leaving nuclear plant face penalties - minister

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Brazil’s Energy Minister Eduardo Braga said on Thursday “it is strange” that contractors are abandoning work on the Angra 3 nuclear plant and warned that they will face penalties for not fulfilling their contracts.

Engineering groups Odebrecht and Queiroz Galvao said on Wednesday they were pulling out of a consortium building the nuclear reactor due to payment delays from Eletronuclear, a unit of state utility Eletrobras. (Reporting by Jeb Blount; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
