Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come (Victor Hugo) Nuclear power plant Zwentendorf: an example of Austria’s contemporary history and a lesson to Austrian politics.
Zwentendorf is the world’s only nuclear power plant to have been completed but never put into operation due to the outcome of a national referendum. Zwentendorf is certainly a captivating place. Nowadays the Power Plant is producing 100% green energy by Photovoltaics.panels. The photovoltaic facility Zwentendorf has been comprised of about 2,300 solar panels. Instead of the originally planned 700 MW of capacity, the panels generate around 450 kWp. This site applies numerous technical principles ranging from a rooftop facility and side wall systems to an open-space solar park on the grounds of the power plant. The latter includes fixed supported solar generators and sun-tracking solar systems that produce up to 25% more electricity than those permanently mounted.
