The conclusions on the compliance of design solutions with the EUR requirements were made by the European experts based on a review of the design documentation and information provided in the documents on the reference project of the Kursk NPP-2.

As a result, European experts concluded that the VEER-TOI design complies with modern views on the safety and efficiency of nuclear power plants. The analysis made it possible to improve the quality of subsequent projects and facilitate the future operation of nuclear power plants.

Recognition of the compliance of VVER-TOI with “European Utility Requirements” will contribute to the promotion of Russian nuclear technologies in foreign markets.
