DESNOGORSK, Smolensk region, April 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Chief engineers of the Rosenergoatom Concern met on the Smolensk nuclear power plant premises to sum up results of Russian nuclear power plants in the autumnal and winter season.
“Russian nuclear power plants retained the positive dynamics of safe and sustainable operation of power units and fulfillment of production plans,” Concern Deputy General Director Alexander Shutikov said.
The three-day conference also discussed modernization programs. “The shorter period of repairs, which are well planned, builds up the output of nuclear power plants and raises the production efficiency,” the concern representative said.
The second and third units of the Smolensk nuclear power plant are at work now. The first unit was halted for planned 90-day repairs on January 26. The plant operates RBMK-1000 reactors, each of 1,000 megawatt.
The Smolensk NPP is a Rosenergoatom unit, a leading energy producer in northwestern Russia. Its average yearly contribution to the national energy system nears 20 billion kilowatt/hours of electricity, about a seventh of all electricity generated at ten nuclear power plants of Russia.
