“Despite events in Ukraine and possible risks of delays in supplies of equipment, nuclear power unit launches scheduled for 2014 will take place on time. We are not yet assessing the risks of delays, but in theory problems with supplies may occur. We are not yet experiencing real problems with supplies from Ukrainian enterprises,” he said.
Rosenergoatom keeps plans to launch the fourth unit at the Beloyarskaya nuclear power plant (NPP) in late September, Romanov said.
In 2014, the company also plans to launch the first unit at the Novovoronezhskaya NPP-2 plant and the third unit at the Rostov nuclear power plant.
In April, Rosenergoatom Deputy CEO Pavel Ipatov said that the company could delay the launch of the fourth unit at the Beloyarskaya nuclear plant for several months due to problems with fittings supplies from Ukrainian facilities.
In May, Rosatom said there were risks of delays in the launch of the first unit at the Novovoronezhskaya NPP-2 nuclear plant because of difficulties with equipment supplies by Ukraine.
