Caption

Nuclear reactor hall. View of the interior of a reactor hall at the Flamanville nuclear power station, France. The core of the reactor is situated in the water pool (blue, centre). Above this is a crane used to carry fuel rods to 'charge' the core before the reactor begins operation. Flamanville is typical of French 1300 megawatt pressurised water reactors (PWRs). Built to standard, proven designs, French power stations have a reputation for safety and reliability but are built at a fraction of the cost and time of equivalent plants in other countries. By 1990, nuclear power accounted for 75% of France's electricity.
