Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant (NY), a case study for nuclear adaptive reuse

“ Power plants have a number of qualities that make them ideal for redevelopment. The design style of older power plants makes them attractive for reuse from an aesthetic or historical perspective. They were constructed with large turbine generator halls mainly because they were steam cycle based, which required large buildings. These large spaces present opportunities for a variety of reuse options. The large open spaces make old power plants ideal for conversion into museums and exhibit halls, but the options should not be limited to museums and heritage facilities.” (IAEA, Redevelopment and reuse of nuclear facilities and sites: case histories and lessons learned, 2011, p.24)
