The Green Party in the Bavarian state parliament says that Germany’s largest nuclear power plant Gundremmingen, operated in part by RWE, has exceeded power output limits several times over the past year and a half by up to 20 percent, writes Süddeutsche Zeitung. According to a power plant spokesperson, Gundremmingen did not exceed limits. He said that the data shown on RWE’s website was wrong due to a faulty calculation design. A spokesperson of the state environment ministry said that there were no indications of exceeded limits, writes the paper.
