Leibstadt nuclear power station

Since 1984, the Leibstadt nuclear power plant (KKL) has been responsible for producing around one sixth of the electricity consumed n Switzerland. The cooling tower is 144 meters high, and measures 120 meters in diameter at the base. The KKL is cooled by water circulating in the cooling tower cycle, rather than by once-through cooling using river water.
