The 4th power block of the Rostov NPP has produced 7 billion kilowatt-hours of electric power during its first year of operation

Since the moment it was included into the Unified Energy System of Russia, the 4th power block of the Rostov NPP has produced 7 billion kilowatt-hours of electric power.

As you may recall, on February 1, 2018, Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, started the program of getting the 4th power block to its designed capacity and noted that the launch of the 4th power block of the Rostov NPP would cater for the existing and future needs in electric power across the South of Russia.

According to the data provided by an Affiliate Company of the Unified Energy System, The Interregional Dispatching Office of the Southern Unified Energy System, the latter has been facing an increase in the electric power consumption during the past year, with 3.2% increase in 2018 compared to 2017. The Stavropol energy system has shown a 1.6% increase, the one in the Astrakhan Region – 1.2%, the one in the Volgograd Region – 6.4%, the Kuban Region – 2.7%, and the Rostov Region – 4.2%.

In order to cater for the capacity of the Rostov NPP’s 4t power block, a new 500-kilowatt power line ‘Rostov NPP – Rostov) was introduced last year as a transit point for the ‘nuclear’ electric power to the areas adjacent to the Rostov Region.

Being one of the major companies in the electric power industry of the Rostov Region and the South of Russia, the Rostov NPP accounts for 1/3 of all electric power delivered to the Southern Unified Energy System.

The nuclear power operates in a stable and secure manner and supplies the population of the North Caucasian Federal District and the Southern Federal District with electric power on an ongoing basis, including but not limited to the period during the hot summer days and the cold winter season.

In 2018, the Rostov NPP has produced 29,369,594,000 kilowatt-hours of electric power, thus completing the governmental plan by 111.8%.

The Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia has commissioned the Rostov NPP to produce 31,640,000,000 kilowatt-hours of electric power in 2019.

Rostov NPP is the branch of the Rosenergoatom (a part of the Electric Energy Division – the largest division of Rosatom State Corporation). The enterprise is located at the shore of Tsimlyansk Reservoir 13 km away from the town of Volgodonsk. The NPP operates the reactors of VVER-1000 type with the installed capacity of 1,000 MW. The power unit No 1 was put into industrial operation in 2001, No 2 – in 2010, No 3 – in September, 2015. The power unit No 4 was started up in February, 2018.
