Nuclear Power Plants of Russia

Presently, there are 10 operating nuclear power plants (NPP) in Russia with most them located in the European part of the country. They produce 18,6% of the electricity generated in the country.

NPPs are absolutely safe for the environment, unlike many ecologically dangerous productions. The modern safety standards applied at NPPs guarantee that the past mistakes – when inattention and incompetence caused serious technological failures - will never recur.

In the last years lots of developed countries have reviewed their policies on peaceful nuclear energy and have begun actively building own NPPs in order to reduce their dependence from electricity exporters.

NPPs are not only strategic facilities but companies employing tens of thousands of people. Continuity and devotion underpinned by stability and high remuneration are the key guarantees of the sector’s development.
