Plant Operation

The operating licence of the single-unit Trillo nuclear power station in central Spain has been renewed for a further 10 years following government approval.

The approval followed the submission last month of a report by the Spanish nuclear regulator to the Ministry of Industry approving the reactor’s continued operation.

The 990-megawatt pressurised water reactor unit, which began commercial operation in August 1988, can now operate until 17 November 2024.
