gas cooled reactors?[edit]

I think that in the introduction, gas cooled reactor types should be included. There are 145 (?) reactors of this type running in the UK at the moment. (AGR, improved MAGNOX design) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:51, 2 March 2016 (UTC)


The paragraph on warranty period of 30 years being influenced by radiation effects on structural materials is an important one, and should be expanded. It was written in January 2014 by Vyacheslav84 with citations to a Russian language article, and it is evident that the statements are factual (Google translated and about 1/3 the way down). An English language reference would be better, but all I can find are NASA papers on radiation effects on insulators [1] but not for metal or concrete. Bert490 (talk) 03:12, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Amendment: the reference to radiation wear was already in Wikipedia, so the article now links to an English reference. Bert490 (talk) 02:06, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

The number of operational plants[edit]

This article states it's 446. Should the current article be changed accordingly?--Adûnâi (talk) 05:50, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Nuclear power plant[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Nuclear power plant's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "DIAZMAURIN2011":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 07:53, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
