With more than 21,000 employees we supply electricity, gas, water and energy-related products and services to 5.5 million customers. Power and residual operation as well as decommissioning and dismantling of our 5 NPP in Germany are executed by an EnBW subsidiary, the EnBW Kernkraft GmbH (EnKK). Two units (KKP 2 and GKN II) are still in operation until 2019 and 2022, respectively. But the license for D&D is already applied for. The remaining three units (KWO, KKP 1 and GKN I) are already licensed for D&D and the dismantling process has started in 2008 (KWO) and 2017 (KKP 1/GKN I), respectively. Safety in power and residual operation, decommissioning and dismantling has always highest priority for our NPP fleet. Our NPP fulfill the standards of German law and safety regulations. The safety level is comparable with the required standards of the IAEA for new plants.
