03 December 2019

On November 19, 2019, the representatives of the Public Chamber of the Kursk region paid a visit to the Kursk NPP-2 construction site and reviewed the progress of the replacement plant construction.

VVER-TOI is a flagship Russian nuclear power plant project aimed at mass construction both in Russia and all over the world. The new power blocks’ life span is 60 years with an option to extend it up to 80 years. They encompass the most cutting-edge technology solutions and the best of their predecessors, VVERs. Apart from the extended life span, the capacity has been increased, the reactor facility, the building and construction arrangements have been modified. VVER-TOI is an evolutionary step in the nuclear power industry.

A new milestone is the completion of the 2nd power block’s normal operation power supply building construction reinforcement. This is one of the key buildings required for the operation of the nuclear power. It will house electric systems facilitating the operation of the power block’s equipment. The 2nd power block’s molten core catcher is scheduled to be installed at its final position until the end of the year.
