Centrale nucléaire de Cattenom

The problem-plagued nuclear power plant in Cattenom, France.

Luxembourg and the German states of Rhineland-Palatinate and the Saarland have been urging that Cattenom be taken offline for safety reasons for years.

After a malfunction this week, one of Cattenom’s four reactors was powered down. In May 2014 there was an accident in which ten employees were irradiated. In July 2013 a transformer caught fire.

Der Spiegel reported that Cattenom has had >700 “incidents” in recent years.
