VLADIVOSTOK, September 4. /TASS/. Russia’s nuclear agency Rosatom and Chukotka autonomous region have signed an agreement on construction of an offshore nuclear power plant in the town of Pevek, a TASS correspondent reported.
The offshore NPP is now under construction on the Baltiysky plant and it will be completed in 2016.
It will replace the Bilibinskaya NPP which is now operating in Chukotka. The operating life of the Bilibinskaya NPP has been extended until 2020.
It is planned that the offshore NPP will be twice as powerful as the Bilibinskaya NPP - about 80MWt.
Earlier TASS reported that Rosatom is to receive 5 billion rubles ($ 72 mln) in subsidies from the federal budget for the construction of coastal and hydraulic infrastructure to accommodate the floating nuclear power plant in the town of Pevek.
The total construction cost of the floating unit, coastal and hydraulic infrastructure until 2019 will amount to 37.3 billion rubles ($557 mln), including the funds from the federal budget.
