Abstract: Abstract This chapter aims to analyse the role of West Germany in the Spanish nuclear program. Based on published sources and unpublished files, the manuscript identifies the main agents, negotiations, interest, procedures and results, at both governmental and business level. Special attention will be given to the historical origins, development and role of the nuclear industrial system in West Germany and nuclear networking in Spain. The aim is to explain how the bid for a nuclear power plant in Spain was won in 1975. Trillo NPP was the only German-installed plant in a complex nuclear ecosystem based on international technology and finance such as that of Spain.
