The Novovoronezh NPP is one of the oldest enterprises in the Russian Federation nuclear power industry.

During more than forty years of the Novovoronezh plant history, five power units with VVER-type reactors were built and commissioned. The brand-new power unit No. 1 of the Novovoronezh NPP-2 based on NPP-2006 series VVER-1200 reactor with the installed capacity of 1,195.4 MW (Generation 3+ innovative power unit) was constructed and put in pilot operation at the stage of bringing the output to 100% as at the end of 2016. Commercial operation started in February 2017. Most of the construction operations are completed at the reactor building and the power house of the second power unit of this series.

On December 29, 2016, the Novovoronezh NPP power unit No. 3 with the installed capacity of 417 MW was finally shut down for decommissioning preparations.

In 2013, the Novovoronezh and Leningrad NPPs took the third place in the annual contest for the Best Nuclear Power Plants of the Year.
In 2016, the Novovoronezh NPP was the runner-up in the nation-wide contest for Russian Organization of High Social Efficiency held by the Russian Federation Ministry of Labor and Social Protection in the nomination for Reduction of Occupational Injuries and Diseases.
