Nov 02, 2015, 09:37 ET from POWER

HOUSTON, Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- POWER magazine today officially announced winners of its 2015 Top Plants in the nuclear generation category. This year's winners are sited in very different locations, climates, and political and economic environments around the world. They deploy diverse state-of-the-art technologies to address both unique and global challenges.

Central Nuclear Nestor Kirchner (Atucha II), Lima, Argentina
The U.S. isn't the only country to have seen work begin on a nuclear unit only to halt for many years before being taken up again. In spite of what sometimes seemed like insurmountable odds, Atucha II represents not just new capacity but also the revitalization of Argentina's nuclear industry.

Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, Wintersburg, Arizona
This desert-sited nuclear plant, the largest power generator in the U.S., proves that with superior operation and maintenance, a nuclear plant can be a record-setter even as it moves into its "second lifetime" as a relicensed plant.
