Full license for first power-generating unit of Belarusian nuclear station within week

Written by

The Belarusian nuclear power plant intends to get the full license for the first power-generating unit next week, BelTA learned from Anatoly Bondar, Chief Engineer of the enterprise Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant, during a mass media tour to the Ostrovets construction site on 17 April. The tour had been arranged by the Energy Ministry.

The full license authorizes the entire volume of the work before the nuclear power plant is commissioned. “The full license is under consideration. Conditions for the license’s effect are being prepared by the Nuclear and Radiation Safety Department of the Belarusian Emergencies Ministry,” explained the specialist. The work proceeds on schedule. Yet he added that experts of the Nuclear Energy Institute Sosny had had quite many remarks about the design documents. The operating organization and the general designer had done effective work to address the remarks, stressed Anatoly Bondar.

Construction workers started pouring concrete into the foundation of the facilities that will make up the first power-generating unit of the Belarusian nuclear power plant at the Ostrovets site in November 2013. The Belarusian nuclear power plant will boast two power-generating units with the total generating capacity of up to 2,400MW (1,200MW each). The Russian design AES-2006 has been chosen to build the power plant. The design is fully compliant with international standards and IAEA recommendations. The Russian merged company OAO NIAEP – ZAO Atomstroyexport (ASE) is the general designer and the general contractor for building the power plant. The timeline for implementing the project is stipulated by the general contract. The first power-generating unit of the nuclear power plant is scheduled for launch in November 2018.

As of 5 April as much as 5% of the total work required to build the Belarusian nuclear power plant was completed.
