This is the nuclear power plant with the highest electrical power installed in Spain

Cofrentes nuclear power plant, Iberdrola Generación Nuclear S.A. property, is the largest electrical power installation among Spain’s nuclear plants, counting on 1,092 megawatts (MW).

Since 1984, the Cofrentes nuclear power plant (Cofrentes NPP) has stood some 2 kilometers from the town of Cofrentes in the Spanish province of Valencia. This electricity generating installation is rigorously committed to producing energy that respects the environment and competing on the basis of the principles of safety, quality, professional integrity and technological innovation.

In 2020, Cofrentes nuclear power plant generated 9,247 million kilowatt hours (kWh), equivalent to 3,7 % of Spain’s national electrical production.

This plant, together with the rest of the nuclear facilities, contributes decisively in the fight against climate change, no longer generating CO2. More specifically, Cofrentes nuclear power plant helps prevent an annual emission into the atmosphere of 5 million tons of CO2.
