NOVOVORONEZH, Voronezh region, April 23 (Itar-Tass) - Investment in the construction of the Novovoronezh NPP 2 will run into some 66 billion rubles in 2013-2014, Sergei Kiriyenko, the head of the Nuclear Energy State Corporation Rosatom, told reporters in Novovoronezh on Monday.
He said that the spending for the construction of two reactors of Novovoronezh NPP 2 in 2013 prices will make up 220 billion rubles. Rosatom intends to save some 10 billion rubles at these stages of the construction, Kiriyenko added.
The physical startup of the first reactor is due in late 2013, Kiriyenko said. He said 6,000 people must be employed at the construction site by late 2013. “What matters the most is not the number of those employed but their skills, as the most intricate work is to start,” he said.
