Gösgen nuclear power station

KKW Gösgen

A pressurised water reactor in the Gösgen nuclear power plant releases energy, which is headed and evaporated in a separate water cycle, generating steam to spin the turbines. The power station covers around 15 percent of Swiss electricity needs. Over the years the volume of electricity produced has increased by almost one fifth.
