1. To know where Rosatom has built nuclear power stations
2. What plans are for the future?
3. What types of reactors are used in nuclear power stations?
Today Russia is
leading in new nuclear construction abroad. ROSATOM holds first place in terms
of the number of simultaneously implemented nuclear reactor construction
projects (36 abroad).
On May 12, 2010, during the visit of the President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev to Turkey, an Agreement was signed between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Republic of Turkey on cooperation in the construction and operation of a nuclear power plant at the Akkuyu site in the Republic of Turkey. The construction of the first Turkish nuclear power plant will be implemented on the terms of SBI .Until now, there was no precedent in world practice for using the BOO mechanism in atomic energy. At the start, the project of the Turkish NPP will be financed from Russian sources, in the future it is planned to attract investors from both Turkey and third countries.
Type of reactor: VVER-1200
Power units – 4
is the first nuclear power plant in Iran and the Middle East.
In 1992, the
Russian Federation and the Islamic Republic of Iran signed a peaceful nuclear
cooperation agreement and in August of the same year they signed an agreement
of cooperation about construction of a nuclear power plant in Iran
Type of reactor: VVER-1000
of Units 3, 4, 5, 6 of Kudankulam NPP
Units 1 &
2 were building within the scope of Russian-Indian agreement dated November
20th, 1988 and its attachments dated June 21st, 1998. An official ceremony
dedication of Kudankulam NPP Unit 2 held on October 15, 2016. The
ground-breaking ceremony for construction units 3 & 4 with VVER-1000
reactors (2,100 MW total capacities) was performed on 17 February 2016. Units 3
and 4 are currently under construction.
present time, built to Soviet design, Paks NPP operates four power units with
VVER-440 reactors. In 2009 the Hungarian Parliament approved construction of
two new power units at NPP. In December 2014 ROSATOM and MVM (Hungary) signed
the contract for construction of new power units of the plant. In May that year
Russia and Hungary signed the agreement concerning provision of a €10 billion
loan for Paks construction completion. Pals Phase II is planned as two power
units (Units 5 and 6); they will be built to VVER-1200 design. JSC ATOMPROEKT is the principal contractor.
four power units with VVER-440 reactors are operating at the Paks nuclear power
plant, built according to the Soviet design. In 2009, the Hungarian Parliament
approved the construction of two new power units at nuclear power plants. In
December 2014, the State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM and MVM (Hungary)
signed a contract for the construction of new station units. In March of the
same year, Russia and Hungary signed an agreement on granting a loan of up to
10 billion euros for the completion of the Paks NPP. It is planned that two
units (No. 5 and No. 6) of the VVER-1200 project will be built at the Paks-2
NPP. The general designer is ATOMPROEKT JSC.
is the largest facility of the Russian-Chinese economic cooperation. Phase 1 of
the plant (Units 1 and 2) was built by Russian specialists and has been in
commercial operation since 2007. Annually, Phase 1 of the plant produces more
than 15 bln kWh of electricity. It is meant to be the most of modern plants in
the world owing to new systems (“core melt catcher”). Two first units of
Tianwan NPP were built by a Russian company under the Russia-China
intergovernmental agreement signed in 1992. In October 2009, ROSATOM and China
National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) signed a protocol of continuation of the
cooperation in the construction of the phase two of the plant (Units 3 and 4).
The first stone in the beginning of the construction of the station was laid in the fall of 2013.
160 km away
from Dhaka on the eastern bank of the Ganges, Pabna District Project specifications: Construction of two
power units with VVER reactors (2,4 GW total capacity) launched in December
2017. Apart from NPP construction and commissioning, Russia will construct all
required infrastructure facilities.
Type of reactor: VVER-1200
Pover units – 2
2 power units
with VVER-1200 (PWR) reactors; 2,400 MW total capacity
present time, all works are on schedule at the major facilities of the
constructed power units of Belarus NPP. Unit 1 has completed installation of
essential equipment in the reactor and turbine halls; full-scale start-up and
adjustment continues. Unit 2 carries out installation of essential equipment in
the reactor hall. The construction of this plant promises to set a record of
involvement in the work of Belarus specialist.
In construction of
nuclear power stations are used 3 types of reactors:VVER-1200,VVER-1000,VVER-440
In Turkey, Finland, Belarus,
Bangladesh : VVER-1200
