WILMINGTON, NC—July 28, 2021—The Leibstadt Nuclear Power Plant (KKL) has awarded a long-term contract extension to GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) to provide outage services for the plant in Leibstadt, Switzerland.

“We have supported KKL with outage and inspection services since it went into operation in 1984 and we are proud to continue this strong working relationship,” said John Mackleer, Senior Vice President, Field Services for GEH.

Under the extension, which runs through 2030, GEH will continue to provide a full portfolio of outage and inspection services for the 1,275 Mw boiling water reactor, the most powerful nuclear power plant in Switzerland.

KKL generates enough carbon-free energy to supply two million Swiss households and represents approximately 15 percent of Swiss energy production.
