VOLGODONSK /Rostov Region/, July 23. /TASS/. Russian technologies in the area of nuclear power machine-building and nuclear power plant construction and operation stay at a very high level, ensuring Russia’s advanced positions in this sphere internationally, foreign countries’ permanent representatives at international organizations in Vienna said on Thursday.
A delegation of foreign permanent representatives visited on Thursday the Rostov nuclear power plant and the Volgodonsk-based company Atommash, Russia’s largest nuclear power machine-building enterprise.
The representatives of foreign countries visited the Atommash enterprise, a branch of AEM-Technology, which is integrated into the machine-building division of Russia’s civilian nuclear power corporation Rosatom.
The diplomats were demonstrated the process of manufacturing various units of equipment for nuclear power plants built under Russian projects.
Specifically, they were demonstrated the technologies used by Russian nuclear power specialists to ensure the high level of safety in the operation of nuclear power plants.
The Rostov NPP was the next point of their visit. The diplomats visited the unit control board and the machinery room of power unit No. 3 launched into operation in late 2014, and also the reactor building and the machinery room of power unit No. 4 under construction.
"My impression is as follows: this is a unique place in the world where nuclear power machine-building capacities and the site for the use of products made at these capacities are located next to each other," Argentine Ambassador and Permanent Representative Rafael Mariano Grossi said.
The members of the delegation also praised the high level of work arrangements at Atommash and the Rostov NPP.
"Production at the enterprise is organized very well and there is a very serious system of quality control," Brazil’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative Antonio Vinhas Laercio said.
"Safety issues are extremely important for the nuclear power industry. Safety at the Rostov station is ensured both in the technologies that are applied and in the work discipline," Vietnam’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative Vu Viet Anh said.
