Russia approves plans to build 11 nuclear power plants by 2030

12 Aug 2016
The Russian government has approved plans to construct 11 new nuclear power reactors by 2030. 

The country plans to build two commercial power units with fast-breeder BN-1200 reactors in the Urals and will also construct Russia’s first modern medium-capacity nuclear power reactor at the Kolskaya-2 nuclear power plant. 

According to officials, only a few countries possess fast neutron reactor technology, with Russia leading the pack. Fast reactors will substantially improve safety and further increase competitive across the sector.
