The construction of coastal structures of the floating NPP will not affect the ecology of Pevek - the authorities

Changes in the technical documentation of onshore facilities for the world's first floating nuclear thermal power plant (FNPP) in the Pevek port of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug were approved at public hearings, the press service of the regional government reported. Changes in the design documentation, according to the information of JSC "Concern Rosenergoatom", relate exclusively to constructive and technological solutions relating only to hydraulic structures (GTS), in particular - the berth for the installation of a floating power unit (PSB). As noted, the public hearings did not reveal a negative perception of the planned economic activity related to the construction and operation of the GTS, during the hearings there were no disagreements between the public and the customer-developer.

“Today we face a special task - to ensure high reliability of power supply in the difficult conditions of the Arctic zone. We have developed and are implementing an energy modernization plan, according to which the world's first floating nuclear thermal power plant, with a capacity of 2019 MW, will start operating in Pevek in the year of 70. It will become one of the key energy facilities, and will meet the highest environmental standards, ”the press service quoted the words of the Chukotka governor, Roman Kopin. The head of the region focused on the fact that the modernization of the district energy system will lead to a reduction in the electricity tariff 2,5 times - from 16 rubles. up to 6 rub. per kWh, and this will contribute to the development of promising deposits - in particular, the Baim ore zone (one of the world's largest porphyry copper deposits).

As reported, the construction of the coastal infrastructure of the floating nuclear power plant in Pevek began in October 2016. Since July last year, the floating Akademik Lomonosov power unit has been undergoing mooring tests. Rosenergoatom NPP intends to complete them by October 30 2017. The readiness of the power unit for transportation should be achieved by the end of 2017. It is planned to begin the installation of the power unit in September 2019, and the station should be put into operation in the autumn.
