Russia's first nuclear power plant with SVBR-75/100 reactor unit will go on line in the city of Novovoronezh
Russia's first nuclear power plant with SVBR-75/100 reactor unit will go on line in the city of Novovoronezh (Voronezh region), says the web site of the Federal Nuclear Energy Agency. Earlier, such units powered Russian nuclear submarines and their new overland application will promote lump-sum solution of problems of nuclear power engineering. Russian-developed modular multipurpose fast reactors SVBR-75/100 of 75 megawatts with lead-bismuth coolant provide a basically higher level of safety, experts say. Such a unit is loaded, instead of annually, once in seven to ten years. In combination with other characteristics, this enables "unlimited" service until the end of service life of concrete structures - 150 years. SVBR-75/100 fires different fuels, as well as utilizes weapon-grade and reactor plutonium, without changes in design. The high consumer qualities of SVBR-75/100 will let Russia, until now holding monopoly of the technology, dominate on the high nuclear technologies market and largely broaden the export capabilities of the sector, noted Vladimir Rozin, head of the service ensuring the quality of nuclear power plants.
