New commercial fast-breeder reactor put in operation at Beloyarsk NPP

On the 1st of November, a power unit number four with BN-800 fast-breeder reactor was put in commercial operation at the Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Plant in Zarechny, the town located in the Sverdlovsk region of Russia.


This is what the press office of Rosenergoatom, the Russian nuclear power station operations subsidiary of Atomenergoprom, told Construction.RU. BN-800 reactor is required to perfect the technology of nuclear fuel cycle closure.

Peculiarity of fast-breeder reactors is the capacity to produce more nuclear fuel, than the facility can consume, as well as to burn weapon-grade plutonium with high environmental credentials of electricity production.

We should remind you that the Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Plant was the second of the then Soviet Union's NPPs.
