Cernavoda - Nuclear Power Plant

Posted by carlyluvsunited on Thursday, 16 October 2008

The Nuclear Power Plant in Cernavoda
(Romanian: Centrala Nucleară de la Cernavodă)
is the only nuclear power plant in Romania.

It produces around 20% of the country's electricity.

It uses CANDU reactor technology from AECL,
using heavy water produced at Drobeta-Turnu
Severin as its neutron moderator and water from
the Danube for cooling.

By using nuclear power, Romania is able to reduce
its greenhouse gas emissions by over 10 million
tonnes each year.
