Former nuclear powerplant Garigliano (Censored in Local.Live)


Minturno, Italy (IT)
It is a little known fact that the World Bank financed a nuclear power plant. On September 16, 1959, the Bank made a loan equivalent to $40 million for the construction of a 150,000 kilowatt atomic power plant in Italy (Loan 0235). This was Italy’s first nuclear power plant, and the Bank’s loan financed almost two-thirds of the cost of construction. The project also included civil works, a substation and about 60 miles of transmission lines.

The plant began operation in 1964. In August 1978 it was shut down due to damage to one of the two secondary steam generators. In March 1982 the Italian Electricity Generating Board declared the plant to be out of service.

In Local.Live they retouched the Power plant away.

Instead of the reactor there are trees and a modified river!
This effect you can see at almost every Italian power plant site in LL!
