In 2018, Russian nuclear energy vegetation (branches of Rosenergoatom) set a brand new electrical energy manufacturing report which is 204.275 bln kilowatt-hours, accrued cumulative output and exceeded achievement of 2017 (202.868 bln kWh) by greater than 1.four bln kWh.
Kalinin NPP (about 35 bln kWh), Balakovo NPP over 31 bln kWh) and Leningrad NPP (over 28 bln kWh) achieved most manufacturing amongst Russian NPPs making the best contributions to the mentioned report.
At the current time, the share of nuclear era within the complete vitality mixture of the nation is 18,7% of the overall electrical energy era in Russia. Thus, every fifth electrical bulb within the Russian Federation is lit owing to vitality produced at nuclear energy vegetation.
Russia’s first nuclear energy plant, the primary on this planet to supply electrical energy for business use, was the 5 MW Obninsk reactor, in 1954. Russia’s first two commercial-scale nuclear energy vegetation began up in 1963-64. Russia has made plans to extend the variety of reactors in operation from 31 to 59. Old reactors might be maintained and upgraded, together with RBMK models just like the reactors at Chernobyl. (Source and picture: Rosatom/Kalinin NPP)
