The Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant, with its installed capacity of 1,760 MW, is the second largest nuclear power plant in the Czech Republic. Construction of the nuclear power plant made certain impacts on the life of the surrounding region. New people came from various parts of the country. The initial region became suddenly different. Something went down, and something new has been built. Despite the fact that the construction boom, and the subsequent operation of the power plant only influenced the life of inhabitants in its surroundings, the electric energy produced by the power plant is consumed across the whole country. Therefore, the modern Information Centre was established and opened to the general public. Professional guides working in the Information Centre provide visitors with an erudite explanation on the power plant and nuclear power engineering. All visitors can acquaint themselves on the exhibited models with the reactor and the reactor unit, deposition of spent nuclear fuel and other technical information. All visitors can take the opportunity to formulate a real idea on the functionality of the nuclear power plant using modern state-of-the-art audio-visual techniques.

  • Model of the reactor – Function of the control rod assemblies and system of the automatic regulation of the reactor performance
  • Model of the reactor core (Scale 1:1)
  • Model of a CASTOR 440 container – Storage and transport of spent nuclear fuel
