Reprocessed tonnages
Since the La Hague facility was commissioned in 1976, annual production has grown from a few tonnes to 1,100 tonnes of spent fuel processed in 2004. The decrease observed in 2000 was due to a reduction in the share of overseas customers. Note that small quantities of MOX were reprocessed during 3 campaigns in 1992, 1998 and 2004. The curve and scale (on the right) in terawatthours show the change in electric power generated using fuel processed in La Hague.
