The Grafenrheinfeld nuclear power plant is a now-offline electricity-generating facility near Grafenrheinfeld, south of Schweinfurt at the river Main. The plant operated from 1981 to June 28, 2015, when it was taken offline as part of the phase out policy for nuclear power in Germany.
Construction took place between 1974 and 1981 with construction costs of around 2.5 billion DM. The reactor, a German third-generation pressurized water reactor with an electrical net power output of 1345 megawatts, achieved first criticality on December 9, 1981.
