• The reactor of Beloyarsk NPP launched into industrial operation

  • The fourth unit of Beloyarsk NPP with fast neutron reactor bn-800 was put into commercial operation. On Monday, November 1 reported on the website of "Rosenergoatom".

    An order for the surrender of the reactor was signed on October 31, based on the resolution of Rosatom state Corporation. Before that regulatory authority "Rostekhnadzor" held the necessary checks, and issued a conclusion on the compliance of the facility design documentation, technical regulations and normative legal acts, including requirements for energy efficiency.

    It is noted that at the time of entry into commercial operation since the switching to the grid unit generated more than 2.8 billion kilowatt-hours. This type of reactors are indicated in the concern, the significantly expand the fuel base of nuclear energy and reduce radioactive waste through the implementation of a closed nuclear fuel cycle.

    Beloyarsk NPP was commissioned in April 1964. The first power units of the NPP with reactors on thermal neutrons AMB-100 and AMB-200 have been stopped due to resource development. The bn-800 reactor ("fast neutron", electric power of 880 MW) — experimental-industrial reactor on fast neutrons with liquid-metal coolant sodium.
