The Blayais power plant is located 50 km to the north of Bordeaux. It is easily accessible from the A10 motorway (St-Ciers sur Gironde exit). This power plant generates 120% of the annual electricity consumption of the Aquitaine region in complete safety.
To know more, come and visit our Public Information Centre near the power plant, which is open to all. Thanks to fun, educational modules, you will discover the EDF energy mix and how a nuclear power plant works. The centre is open from Monday to Friday: 8 am to 12 pm and 1.30 pm to 5.30 pm. No entrance fee.
Tours of the power plant facilities are only possible subject to certain conditions, in groups (school parties, associations, companies, etc.). Please contact us for further information.
