Nuclear power station at night. Gravelines pressurized water reactor (PWR) nuclear power station in Calais, France. A PWR uses mixed oxide fuels (MOX), a mixture of 5% plutonium and 95% depleted uranium. Each of the five towers seen produce 900 megawatts (MW) of electricity. Nuclear power stations utilise fission, the splitting of large atoms to release neutrons and energy, in controlled chain reactions.
