Caption: Nuclear power plant components. Technical diagram of components of the light water breeder reactor (LWBR) at Shippingport Atomic Power Station, Pennsylvania, USA. A longitudinal cross-section of the reactor is seen at top centre, with transverse cross-sections taken from different parts of the reactor around it. This water-cooled reactor used thorium oxide as a fuel. Shippingport was the first full-scale nuclear electric power plant in the world. It operated between 1957 and 1982.
