04.09.2019 | The third generation and the opportunities for change

"The Young Soul"

The employees of the youngest generation, who worked the least amount of time at Beznau nuclear power plant, are also proud to work at one of the oldest nuclear power plants in the world. They know that their work in its present form will not last for much longer. They must therefore remain flexible, see change as opportunities and help shape change.

«Wir von der Insel»

Three generations that have operated and still operate the power plant talk about their experiences and memories at Beznau: From the euphoric beginnings in the 60's through all the upheavals up until today. These are testimonies on 50 years of nuclear history in Switzerland.  

On the occasion of the KKB 50-year anniversary, a book featuring three generations of employees, how they work at the Beznau power plant, how they think and how they live will be published in September 2019. 

The book was written by Steven Schneider from Bad Zurzach, a journalist and author of various works including Axpo anniversary publications.
