Lemóniz Nuclear Power Plant is an unfinished nuclear power plant in Lemóniz, in the Basque province of Bizkaia, Spain. Its construction stopped in 1983 when the Spanish nuclear power expansion program was cancelled following a change of government. Its two PWRs, each of 900 MWe, were almost complete but were never operated.
Conflict concerning the Lemóniz Nuclear Power Plant was one of the major anti-nuclear issues in the 1970s and 1980s in Spain. It faced major opposition of the Basque anti-nuclear movement and also of the armed Basque organization ETA.
