The Philippsburg Nuclear Power Plant is located in Philippsburg in Karlsruhe (district). It houses two units, the first a BWR and the second a PWR.

For the first unit, parts made for the cancelled Wyhl plant were used. The second unit was originally planned to be a BWR as well but plans later changed. Final disconnection for both units is scheduled for 2011 for unit 1 and 2017 for unit 2.
