Argentina has two nuclear reactors Atucha-I (335 MWe PHWR) and Embalse (600 MWe PHWR) generating nearly one-tenth of the country’s electricity demand. The third reactor is expected to be commissioned in 2013.

The fourth NPP, consisting of two units each of 750 MWe, is planned to be connected to the network in 2016/2017. The Member Committee foresees that by the end of 2020 four reactors will be in operation in Argentina, with an aggregate capacity of 3 232 MWe.
