Dodewaard nuclear power plant was a nuclear power plant with a boiling water reactor in the Dutch town of Dodewaard. The plant halted energy production in 1997.
The plant in Dodewaard was the first nuclear power plant established in the Netherlands. It was built by the Dutch government, mainly as a means to obtain know-how about the construction and exploitation of a nuclear power plant. The plant was therefore relatively small with a net output of only 58 MW. Construction was started in 1965 and the facility opened on March 26, 1969, in the presence of Queen Juliana.
