The three countries that neighbour the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg all have nuclear installations located within a 100 km radius that produce over 10,000 megawatts of electricity (MWe).
Cattenom nuclear power station
The closest nuclear power station, Cattenom, is located in France, 9 km south of the border and 25 km from Luxembourg City. This nuclear power station has four pressurised water reactors (PWR, or réacteurs à eau pressurisée, REP, in French) with an individual output of 1,300 MWe.
Chooz nuclear power station
There is a second French nuclear power station in Chooz, 70 km west of the border. The station has two sections (Chooz A, a Franco-Belgian project, and Chooz B, a French project) with three 1,450 MWe nuclear reactors.
Tihange nuclear power station
In Belgium, the Tihange nuclear power station is located 65 km north-west of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The three reactors have an overall output of 3,016 MWe and account for around 30% of Belgian electricity production.
Philippsburg and Biblis nuclear power stations
There are two nuclear power stations in Germany, located about 150 km to the east of the country: Biblis and Philippsburg. The former was shut down in March 2011, when the latter's first reactor was also shut down. The closure of the second reactor is planned for 2017.
