The Bilibino NPP is a pioneer nuclear power plant built in the Arctic region, a unique structure situated in the heart of Chukotka and sustaining local ore and gold mining enterprises. It is operated within an isolated energy system in the power loading control mode.

The Bilibino NPP design enables 48 MW power generation by 4 power units (4x12 MW) with the total heat output of 66 Gcal/h (4x16.5 Gcal/h). Meanwhile, the maximum heat output in winter months may reach 100 Gcal/h with power output limitation. 

The Bilibino NPP generates 80% of the electricity produced by the closed-loop Chaun-Bilibino energy system, and the plant is Bilibino’s only source of heat supply.

In 2009, the Bilibino NPP shared the first place in the Best NPP in Safety Culture contest with the Balakovo NPP.
