One of the most influential magazines about energy, American Power, has awarded its prize Power Awards for the year 2016 the project of the fourth unit of the Russian Beloyarsk NPP with a unique fast neutron reactor bn-800, reports RIA Novosti.
Bn-800 won in the category "Best station" (Top of Plants), in which the publication selects the most promising and innovative projects that indicate the vector of development of the entire industry. In determining the winner took into account the possibility of using nuclear power to solve complex problems, in particular, for the production of energy and disposal of radioactive waste. The reactor is also important for the development of technologies for closing the nuclear fuel cycle.
The article Power of awarding winners of the Power Awards underscores the critical importance of fast breeder reactors for "the ambitious plans of Russia in nuclear energy". "The successful construction, operation and testing of the country's first bn-800 reactor at Beloyarsk NPP is a major achievement in the right direction", — says the publication.
