19.02.2021 - Axpo's response to today's media release from the Swiss Energy Foundation (SES) "Beznau nuclear power plant without earthquake protection for decades".
In today's communication, the authors of the communication claim that the Beznau nuclear power plant was operated "for decades without earthquake protection" with regard to the communicated assembly deviations in the two emergency diesels commissioned in the 1990s. This statement has no basis whatsoever. Axpo has invested around CHF 2.5 billion in the reliability and safety of the plant in recent decades, including in earthquake protection and ensuring the emergency power supply.
