      On May 19th, the Almaraz Nuclear Power Plant has reached an accumulated production of 600 million MWh since the beginning of its commercial operation in 1983. This is a "historic milestone" that places the plant as the one with the highest contribution to the national electricity system.

      With an average annual production of more than 16 million MWh in the last decade, the Almaraz plant generates 7 percent of the annual electricity demand of the whole of Spain, equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 4 million homes.

      "Its excellent performance indicators reflect the reliability and stability of its operation, contributing to the fact that, without CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, nuclear energy continues to be the technology that produces more than a fifth of the national electricity," the Almaraz power plant reported in a press release.

      Likewise, the plant has reaffirmed that it is "a vital infrastructure" that "guarantees an essential service" such as electricity to the country, thanks to the "work and commitment" of its professionals.

      He also stressed that, with a "rigorous control system" based on external evaluations and audits, the Almaraz plant is a "world reference, technologically leading, safe and reliable" facility.

      In the last 10 years, substantial economic investments have been made to improve safety, upgrade, modernize and implement the post-Fukushima commitments and, thanks to this, the plant is "even safer and more technologically advanced than when it started operating".
