NMZ to manufacture reactors for atomic power plant

20 Sep '07
Nizhny Novgorod-based Machine Building Plant (NMZ) is to build KLT-40C reactors for floating atomic power plant (APP) in distant north territories. The production is supposed to start with six to eight reactors.

Two reactors are particularly to be used in Severodvinsk for low power floating APP. Others are to go to Vilyuchinsk (Kamchatka) and Pevek (Chukotka). Another Nizhny Novgorod-based company OKBM named after Afrikantov plans to provide APP with power-generating units. Floating APP building in remote oil- and gas-bearing parts in the north is being negotiated as well.

Experts say there are 40 atomic power-generating units to be built in 25 years in Russia that will add 9% of power production. During the same period of time Rosatom will try to build 40 to 60 atomic power-generating units abroad.

The construction of floating APP comes up to $200m and is supposed to pay itself back in seven years.
