The Netherlands plans to build two new nuclear power plants
- According to the Dutch government, the country aims to achieve 27% sustainable energy by 2030
- Each plant will produce between 1,000 megawatts and 1,650 megawatts of electricity
The Dutch government announced on Dec 9, 2022 that the country plans to complete two new nuclear power plants by 2035, which will provide 9-13% of the country's total electricity generation.
It was announced that the sites for the two "third-generation nuclear power plants", each with a capacity of between 1,000 megawatts and 1,650 megawatts, have been tentatively selected for the village of Borssele in the southwestern province of Zeeland.
The only existing nuclear power plant in the Netherlands is also located in Borselle, which generates about 3% of the country's electricity. The plant was due to close in 2033, but the Dutch government says it is prepared to extend its operating life so that it can continue to operate safely beyond that date.
According to the Dutch government plan, the country aims to achieve 27% sustainable energy by 2030, and achieve carbon neutral electricity production by 2040. Wind, solar and nuclear energy are all clean energy vigorously developed in the Netherlands. Editor/Xu Shengpeng
