Rosenergoatom: Since the beginning of the year, Russian NPPs have exceeded the state order for generation of 3 billion kWh of electric energy

For 7 months of 2017, Russian NPPs have produced 118.23 billion kWh of electric energy, which is 3.12 billion kWh higher than the balance order of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS). As of 1 August, 2017, the FAS balance order was exceeded by 2.7%.

This July, the FAS balance order has been overfulfilled by the following nuclear power plants: Balakovo NPP (generated the planned 3.05 billion kWh and additional 73 million kWh), Kalinin NPP (generated the planned 2.56 billion kWh and additional 325 million kWh), Rostov NPP (generated the planned 2.06 billion kWh and additional 441 million kWh m), Smolensk NPP (generated the planned 2.24 billion kWh and additional 315 million kWh), and Bilibino NPP (generated the planned 17.5 million kWh and additional 2.5 million kWh).

The Capability Utilization Factor (CUF) of the nuclear power plants has been 83.76% since the beginning of the year. At the same time, all Russian NPPs have had safe and reliable operation and no deviations above the zero level according to the International Nuclear Events Scale.

The high performance of Rosenergoatom nuclear power plants is due to the efficient and stable work on the implementation of the schedule of the plants’ unit loading, on the optimization of the repair works timing, and on the increase of the unit efficiency.

The Rosenergoaton Concern (the power division of the Rosatom State Corporation) includes 10 Russian nuclear power stations bearing the status of the Concern’s affiliate companies, along with the vendors catering for the needs of the generation company. All in all, the 10 nuclear power stations operate 35 power blocks* (*excluding the Novovoronezh NPP’s 6th power block being at the pilot production stage): 18 of them operate VVER reactors (12 VVER-1000 power blocks and 5 VVER-440 power blocks of different modifications); 15 of them with channel reactors (11 power blocks with RMBK-1000 reactors, four power blocks with EGP-6 reactors); and 2 power blocks with fast neutron sodium cooling reactors (BN-600 and BN-800).
