International nuclear power plants (2)
There are currently approximately 437 nuclear power reactors in
operation in over 25 countries around the world, with a total output
of some 350,000 megawatts. An additional 36 reactors (27,000 MWe) are
currently under construction.
The links on this page point to owners and/or operators of commercial
nuclear power plants, including both private (investor owned) and
public (government owned) entities. At many of these sites, you can
find generic and site specific information about the design, operation
and performance of various reactor designs. It should be noted that
a given nuclear power plant may be owned or operated by a consortium
of electric utilities. In addition, many nuclear sites host more than
one reactor (often of different designs), which may be owned or
operated by different companies. Not all of the power plants have
"official" web sites. Click on the
for links to photos of the plant, on the
icons for links to technical information, and on the
icons for additional information from
industry, anti-nuclear and government sources, respectively.
(Note, more than one icon can appear beside
the plant name, indicating links to several different sources.)
