Spanish Planned Nuclear Power Plant Shutdowns for 2012

May 21, 2012

Following is a table of shutdowns at nuclear power plants in Spain for 2012, according to data from Madrid-based utilities lobby Unesa.

Six of the nation’s eight reactors were operating today, according to the website of Consejo de Seguridad Nuclear, the country’s nuclear regulator. Almaraz II and Trillo are halted for planned maintenance. Spain produces about 20 percent of its electricity from atomic energy.

The table lists halts for plants owned by Endesa SA (ELE), Iberdrola SA (IBE), Gas Natural SDG SA (GAS) and Nucleanor SA. No halts are planned this year for the 1,092-megawatt Cofrentes, the 1,027- megawatt Asco-2 or the 466-megawatt Santa Maria de Garona reactors, Unesa said.

An asterisk highlights a change from the last version of the table.
