EPR overview
The reactor building houses the primary circuit constituted mainly of the tank (1), steam generators (2), pressurizer (3) and primary pumps (4). The turbine building (13) houses the equipment that converts steam into electricity. If the power of the plant was to be cut, diesel engines, located in two separate buildings (11), will be able to provide the electricity necessary for safety functions. Operators command the plant from the control room (12) located in one of the safeguard buildings.
