Rosenergoatom: the new frontier is taken – 200 billion kWh are generated!

Russian nuclear power plants (included in the Electric Power Division of Rosatom) have established an absolute record for electric energy generation for the entire history of the Russian nuclear power industry.

On the night of 27 December, 2017, the total production of energy by Russian NPPs’ power units exceeded 200 billion kWh.

This is more than the FAS target for 2017, which is 199.8 billion kWh; and it is more than the 2016 achievement in total production of 196.366 billion kWh.

Thus, the Rosenergoatom Concern approached the absolute record for the production previously achieved only once in 1989; the Soviet Union generated 212.58 billion kWh (including NPPs of Ukraine, Lithuania, and Armenia).

Rosenergoatom Concern JSC is the leading enterprise of the Electric Energy Division of Rosatom State Corporation, the leader in electric energy generation both in Russia and abroad. It is the largest generating company in Russia and the 2nd largest in the world in terms of the volume of nuclear generating capacity. The Concern includes all 10 Russian nuclear power plants, which grant the status of branches, as well as enterprises that support the activities of the generating company. In total, 35 power units with a total installed capacity of 27.9 GW are operated at 10 Russian nuclear power plants. At present, the nuclear power plants of Russia produce about 18.3% of the total electric energy in the country.
