Description

Location: FR - France
The module is based on "nuclear power plant, pressure water reactor 1000MW", CH. Only difference is the supply mix of electricity, FR instead of CH.
[The full documentation of this dataset was originally provided in the corresponding ecoinvent report from the Swiss Centre for Life Cycle Inventories, which is accessible for free to guests and users of ecoinvent version 2 (https://www.ecoinvent.org/login-databases.html). The dataset may subsequently have been subjected to central changes to the database, as described in the respective change report for each new release.]
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.

Technology

The described plant Gösgen started commercial operation at the end of 1979. It belongs to the 1000 MW class. It has a Siemens designed primary circuit with three loop cooling, a spherical containment, and a cooling tower. This module can be assumed to be representative for French pressure water reactors of the same class.
