PARIS - French carmaker Renault will re-open its Normandy-based Sandouville plant in northwestern France on Friday, a trade union source told Reuters on Wednesday.

Renault had suspended production at Sandouville plant, following a court order criticising the way the carmaker told unions about its increased protective measures put in place to prevent the new coronavirus from spreading.
