Caorso Nuclear Power Plant was a nuclear power plant at Caorso in Italy. It featured a single Boiling Water Reactor with an electrical net output of 860 MW, used low-enriched uranium as fuel, was moderated and cooled by light water.

It operated from 1978 until 1990, when it was closed following the referendum of November 1987. It was by far the most modern and in terms of capacity biggest nuclear power plant to go online in Italy.
