Zwentendorf, The Nuclear Power Plant That Was Never Turned On

The Zwentendorf Nuclear Power Plant, located on the bank of the Danube River, about 20 miles northwest of Vienna, is Austria’s only nuclear power plant. It was completed in 1978, loaded with fuel, and ready to start up. But then, the country decided that it didn’t trust nuclear energy anymore, and the project was mothballed. It is the only completely finished nuclear reactor that never went online.
