More about the History of Stade
In past decades, Stade has benefited greatly from the presence of chemical and aerospace industry at the Elbe River, such as Dow Chemical and Airbus. There is also a nuclear power plant at the Elbe River, which was connected to the power grid in 1972, making it Germany's second oldest reactor. Following Germany's 2002 decision to phase out nuclear power generation, Stade was the first German plant to be affected, closing down permanently on November 14, 2003. The process of dismantling the facility is supposed to be completed by 2015. Close to the nuclear plant there is an inactive oil-fired power station, the Schilling Power Station.
