The Rostov nuclear power plant reactor vessel delivered for the power number 3

Constructed of "Izhora Plants"under construction for the third unitRostov NPPreactor vessel arrived at the construction site of a nuclear power plant. Initially, the reactor vessel weighing more than 300 tons was delivered by water river towboat "Alexander Obhov" to spetsprichalu JSC "AEM — Technology" Atommash, a part of Rosatom.


Further, according to the "road map", he was overwhelmed by a special platform trucks, tractor and delivered to the Rostov nuclear power plant. After passing the entrance control and authorization RTN reactor vessel will arrive in the installation area of reactor number 3 of the power unit.
Meanwhile, in a newly built third unit approved the schedule of training systems for surgery, "Strait to the open reactor." Before the installers set the task in 2013 as Teplomontazh complete, put the entire cable and deploy the full commissioning. According to the directive the nuclear power plant construction schedule, first criticality third Rostov NPP is scheduled for late 2014.

Rostov (Volgodonsk) nuclear power plant
— One of the largest energy companies in southern Russia. Is a branchJSC "Concern Rosenergoatom".

The project is the construction of the Rostov nuclear power plant, consisting of 4 units to 1 GW each, was approved in 1979, although the construction of the station began already in 1977. In 1990, construction was suspended. By 1998, the design of the plant has been adjusted, the number of units reduced to two. And in 2001, the first unit of the Rostov nuclear power plant was put into operation. It was the first nuclear power plant, which was launched after the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

In the period from 2001 to 2010, the station was called "Volgodonsk NPP," starting with the second unit in 2010, the station returned to its former name — Rostov.

The main activity of the Rostov nuclear power plant:

• Power generation and distribution of electric power.

In 2009, the RTN has been granted a license for the construction of the blocks number 3 and number 4, the launch of which is planned for 2014 and 2016, respectively.

Currently, theRostov NPPhas 2 power unit type reactors — VVER-1000 power generating capacity of 2,000 MW. The station provides about 15% of annual electricity generation in the Rostov region.
