For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Nuclear Power Plant.
The nuclear power plant is a building in Tropico 4. It produces electrical power by heating up water with uranium-fueled reactors, which doesn't generate any pollution like normal Power Plants do. Because it requires a source of water and uranium, it needs to be built on a coastline and Tropico must be importing uranium. Every unskilled professor working in the plant will produce 100 megawatts of power, so a plant full of brand new workers will produce 400 megawatts in total. As the professors gain skill, this total will increase to a maximum of 1200 megawatts.
- Produce Electricity: The plant will only be used for the peaceful purpose of producing electricity.
- Enrich Uranium: The plant will be used to weaponize uranium, halving the electricity produced, but eliminating the upkeep costs of running a Nuclear Program.
