Preparations at the moment are underway in Russia to construct new energy models within the Leningrad and Smolensk Regions. The corresponding determination was signed by Alexey Likhachev, Rosatom State Atomic Corporation Director General.
?ommenting on this determination, Likhachev mentioned: “The Russian nuclear energy business has approached this stage with newly developed forms of NPPs – the VVER-1200 and VVER-TOI. These tasks are being efficiently applied in Russia, and VVER-1200 can be applied overseas. They had been designed in accordance with the most recent achievements and developments that meet all present worldwide security necessities”.
These services are included in Russia’s General scheme of electrical energy facility placement till 2035, authorised by the Russian Government. JSC Rosenergoatom, a part of Rosatom State Corporation, shall be each the developer and technical coordinator of the funding tasks.
The first stage of Leningrad NPP-2 building serves as a reference undertaking for the brand new models of the Leningrad NPP. The VVER-TOI undertaking much like the one that’s beneath building at Kursk NPP-2 shall be applied in Smolensk.
“The new energy models will change the models with RBMK-1000 reactors, whose service life will finish within the subsequent decade. According to preliminary estimates, their building will create as much as 15 thousand new jobs, present common tax revenues to regional and native budgets,” mentioned Andrei Petrov, Director General of JSC Rosenergoatom.
By the top of this yr, a preliminary work implementation undertaking shall be carried out on the building web site of latest energy models ? three and ? four with VVER-1200 reactors of the Leningrad NPP-2. Temporary family building camps and an industrial base are deliberate to be constructed. Over the 2020-2022 interval, public hearings shall be held relating to license justification and an evaluation of the environmental impression of models three and four. Construction undertaking analysis needs to be carried out till 2022.
The new Smolensk NPP-2 energy models with VVER-TOI reactors with a complete capability of two 510 MW shall be constructed 6 km away from the NPP’s current energy models. By the top of 2020 it’s deliberate to arrange and approve an motion plan of the «Smolensk NPP-2 energy models ? 1, 2» funding undertaking and begin the undertaking financing course of in accordance with this plan.
