“The provision of radiation control at the NPPP power units, in its sanitary protection zone and in the observation zone, as well as the state of the parameters characterizing the radiation safety of the NPP during operation, confirm the absence of a negative impact of the nuclear power plant on the environment and the population living around the NPP,” said Olga Rosnovskaya , head of the radiation control laboratory.

Note that in 2017, the Novovoronezh NPP was awarded two important awards. For the effective implementation of environmental policy and a great contribution to the preservation of the environment The non-governmental environmental fund named after V.I.
