EDF - Saint-Laurent-des-Eaux NPP

  • Saint-Laurent-des-Eaux Nuclear Power Plant

  •  The ID file of NPP

    • Commissioning date: 1981
    • 2014 production: 12,2 TWh
    • Number of Production Unit: 2
    • Total power: 2 x 900 MW 

    The first nuclear reactors, built in France between 1958 and 1966, belonged to UNGG technology (Uranium Graphite Natural Gas). 2 reactors such as these have set up on the site of St Laurent-des-Eaux. The first ran between 1969 and 1991 and the second has been exploited between 1971 and 1992.  They have been shut down by a decree on the April 11, 1994 and are currently in deconstruction.

    EDF has adopted an American technology, more efficient and less expensive: the Pressurized Water Reactor. This technology has been declined on each of the 58 reactors from 1977 to 1999, for a total power of 63 GW.

    The 2 units of St Laurent-des-Eaux power plant were commissioned in 1981.

    St Laurent-des-Eaux power plant belongs to a standardized plant, which enable to pool the engineering, operating and maintenance resources and has for all the nuclear production plant, an important experience return.  
    In 2013, the French nuclear fleet produced 403,7 billion kWh. 

    The Saint-Laurent-des-Eaux power plant, however, produced over the same period 12,2 billion kWh, almost 3% of the EDF French nuclear power production.
