NPP started testing the second unit

At unit 2 of Novovoronezh NPP–2 started installation of simulators of fuel assemblies. Technology before loading the reactor core with nuclear fuel, the system must be checked. For this purpose, the reactor will load 163 steel simulator, weight and dimensions are completely identical fuel parts (fuel assemblies).

The difference is that the tablets of dioxide of uranium in fuel Assembly simulators replaced by lead.

– This is necessary in order to verify the hydraulic characteristics of the core, main circulation pumps and other reactor systems. With them will be a phase of cold hot break, which will last for 21 days – said a leading engineer-physicist of the Department of nuclear safety and reliability of NV NPP Mykhailo Zhuk.

It should be noted that these simulators were used two years ago to the innovative power unit No. 1 of Novovoronezh NPP–2 with VVER-1200 reactor, after which they went on the power unit №1 of Leningrad NPP-2. Now they once again arrived at the Novovoronezh.

On the power unit of Novovoronezh NPP-2 began filling the sprinkling basins

At Novovoronezh NPP-2 began filling the sprinkling basins construction of the second unit. Technical water supply at NPPs with VVER-1200 is closed, that is, the process water circulates in a circle.

Sprinkle the pools are two artificial reservoirs, divided into two bowls. Water above them, water is cooled by spray – so increasing the contact of water with air and the intensity of evaporative cooling. For full filling of swimming pools will require partially chimbacalle 26000 cubic meters of water. This water is diverted from the river don, is the mechanical cleaning on bessolevaya install removes impurities and chemicals.

– Sprinkle the pools involved in the cooling system auxiliary equipment of the reactor compartment, including emergency. There are winter and summer relief, a break which is not allowed under any circumstances – said the expert of the office for quality and technical support of AEP MFDS Alexander Kachaev.

Novovoronezh NPP was visited by Turkish specialists

At Novovoronezh NPP as observers were representatives of the Turkish atomic energy authority (TAEK) who participated in a comprehensive planned inspection of Rostekhnadzor Novovoronezh NPP.

The purpose of the visit of the representatives of TAEK in Novovoronezh is a experience of inspecting objects that use atomic energy. Turkish experts conducted at the Novovoronezh nuclear power plant work week from 4 to 8 June 2018. According to representatives of the Turkish delegation, they had a very good experience.

– We watched as the Rostechnadzor conducts inspections of systems and equipment for Novovoronezhskaya NPP, – said the head of the monitoring group for electricity systems in the project NPP “Akkuyu”, electrical engineer Ertugrul Akbulut. The RTN approach to the inspection of the object of use of atomic energy is similar to the international approach. We understand that the inspectors of the Supervisory body know that first and foremost you need to pay attention when checking. Specialists answered all our questions and gave an explanation of the practice of inspection. We saw everything we expected to see.

The delegation visited the innovation unit №1 of Novovoronezh NPP-2 generation 3+ reactor VVER-1200, which is the reference for NPP “Akkuyu”, which is being built in Turkey.

The visit of the representatives of TAEK at the Novovoronezh nuclear power plant was held in the framework of bilateral interdepartmental agreements on cooperation between the Federal service for ecological, technological and nuclear supervision and the atomic energy Agency of Turkey signed on 8 June 2010 in Istanbul.

The delegation from Indonesia appreciated by the advanced nuclear technology Novovoronezh NPP

The delegation of the Committee on national economy and industry of the Republic of Indonesia in the framework of the official visit to the Russian Federation Thursday, may 17, visited Novovoronezh nuclear power plant (NVNPP). The head of delegation, head of the working group on energy and mineral resources of Soulajar Usman shared the results of the trip.

– Indonesia plans to develop nuclear energy. At the moment we are considering the possibility of building in-country research reactor. We want to get acquainted with all international development, to choose what is most suitable to us. Those practices that apply to the new power unit of Novovoronezh NPP, I am very impressed, this is a wonderful facility where all the conditions are met, the security said Zolnour Usman.

The working group participants visited the Training center of Novovoronezh nuclear power plant, in which are trained specialists of a number of countries-partners of Rosatom. The delegation visited block control room and turbine hall of power unit No. 6 – the world’s first power unit generation “3+”, which was put into commercial operation on 27 February 2018. The guests also visited the construction site of construction of power unit No. 7 of Novovoronezh NPP.

In April 2015 the Russian-Indonesian consortium with the participation of enterprises of Rosatom won the tender for the pre-design phase for the construction of an experimental high temperature gas-cooled reactor, the work was successfully completed and delivered to the customer in December of the same year.

In June of the same year Russia and Indonesia signed a Memorandum of understanding on cooperation in peaceful atom. In September 2015, the company of Rosatom “RusAtom oversiz ink” and National atomic energy Agency of Indonesia (BATAN), signed in Jakarta, a Memorandum of understanding on construction projects construction of NPPs in Indonesia.
