Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Beznau Nuclear Power Plant is located in the municipality D ttingen on an artificial island in the Aar river. It is operated by Axpo AG. Beznau 1 is the first commercial nuclear power reactor in Switzerland. Putting an end to the traditional predilection of the Swiss power utilities for hydroelectric power, in the beginning of the 1960s the then Nordostschweizerische Kraftwerke AG started to take into account the construction of a nuclear power plant. On 23 December 1964 the Swiss Federal Office of Energy recognized the artificial island in Beznau as potential location for a reactor. The corresponding construction permit was issued on 2 November 1965 and, after only four years, on 12 May 1969 commissioning was authorized. On 24 December 1969 Beznau 1 started commercial operation.show more
