First reactor vessel for BelNPP in autumn 2015

Written by

The Volgodonsk subsidiary of AEM-Technology is set to deliver a reactor vessel for the first power-generating unit of the Belarusian nuclear power plant (BelNPP) in autumn 2015, Operations Director of the Atommash subsidiary Vitaly Shishov told media on 18 June, BelTA has learned.

 “We have been tasked with delivering the first reactor vessel for the Belarusian NPP in autumn 2015,” the official said. At present the production of the reactor vessel elements is almost over.

According to Vitaly Shishov, the BelNPP site with the simultaneous construction of two power-generating units, is one of the most active among NPP construction projects. He stressed that the delivery contracts are compiled so as to have a small interval, about a year, between the installation of the nuclear island equipment (including reactor vessels, steam generators) at the two power units.

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 consist of 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.
